Finding a roman theatre in the middle of Trieste is quiet a surprise. It's a nice little theatre and you can admire it from the sidewalk.

This is a wonderful site and it is a shame that other reviewers have incorrectly said there is no access. The theatre is not at all far from the main commercial and tourist parts of the city. Once found, climb up the steps to the...More

This is a small, by Roman standards Amphitheatre, and semi complete. Unfortunately you can only look from the Street and not walk around the Amphitheatre. Still worth a look.

Rather well preserved and conveniently located, Teatro Romano di Trieste makes for a nice destination. It is not on the same level of its counterpart in Verona, but is still quite interesting. It would be very instigating to be able to enter and roam the...More
