Visited the amphitheater today with friends. It is very small and not completely excavated due to the buildings in the area. It is free to visit the outside.

These are remarkable remains of a Greek /Roman amphitheater right in the middle of the city. We found it easy enough. Yep it’s not complete and yep there are other buildings encroaching on the ruins but that is part of its uniqueness. We loved poking...More

Struggling to find the entrance, we pretty much walked around the block. We were rather disappointed in the condition and descriptions of the ruins. Considering the other gorgeous sites we saw in Taormina, Agrigento and Marinella di Selinunte and even Siracusa, these, the first we...More
