Our first major sight when we arrived in Spoleto was the Roman ruins and the rebuilt in parts amphitheater. Stunning to realise that something built 2000 years ago could be useful today. Highly recommended

There is an entrance fee to pay but don't!! You can see all you need to from vantage points opposite the tourist office. The ruins are quite well preserved and presented but you don't need to pay to see them.

Much history here. It's a nice place to rest on the solid ancient seating, contemplating what must have taken place in bygone times. The theater is located right across from the tourist office. The first century Roman Theater was excavated in 1891. It is still...More

This is a small Roman theater that has been reasonably well preserved. It is outdoors and easily walked. You might imagine the ancient Spoletans collecting to be entertained by an athletic event, or maybe the ancient version of the Rolling Stones. It does not look...More
