A very nice Greek/Roman theatre that you can walk all around and go on. There is a much smaller one beside it which you can't go into. There is a little museum there too which consists of two rooms with maybe two dozen objects. Most of the recovered object are in other museums. The signs and descriptions are in Italian and English. Some of the place dates from the ancient Greeks. The place was changed many times over the last 2500 years. The place is worth going to and I was flat that I did.
Lots to see here, best to allow at least 2 hours. There's been a lot of restoration work, and there's a lot of reading material on display to explain the history A roman amphitheatre built on top of a Greek one, remember to bring some cold water and a snack, it's easy to remain interested for several hours as there's a lot to see!
