The town was quite beautiful and to our surprise. The amphitheatre was astonishing and full of history.

A truly wonderfully preserved example of an ancient Roman amphitheatre. You can walk around freely and really explore this amazing venue and imagine how the place must have been in the ancient times. Wonderfully preserved and in great condition. If you are lucky you can even visit when they have concerts and other events here.
Very well preserved Roman building. It was conserved and partially rebuilt over last 200 years. There are a LOT of steps, if you want to visit the towers. But a short climb gets you to the main seating area. The site is still in use for modern events. Essential visit for fans of Rome.
