  • One of the most interesting sites in Italy, replete with history, only €2.50 to enter and often practically empty of people. This is the second-largest amphitheater in Italy (the Colosseum in Rome is larger), and there is some evidence that this is the FIRST and oldest of all known Roman amphitheaters. This is the site of the first Roman gladiator school and also the place where Spartacus began his famous “slave revolt” against the Roman Republic. The site also allows access to the “basement” of the amphitheater, which is very interesting and expansive. 4 stars because the “museum” on site is two small rooms with a few artifacts on display, and the only information available is very limited and in Italian only.
  • Well preserved Roman arena. Fascinating place to roam feeling and absorbing the history. I enjoyed it a lot, highly recommended. Also, plenty of beautiful and special spots for photography.
