Truly fascinating and well worth having the audioguide. It is quite a big area so take water. But beware of the large tour groups.

Please watch out at the entrance. They will charge a 13 year old. Other people had to pay for 3 people and got 2 tickets. If you ask your money back, you will not receive it back. Be careful with these scammers!

One of the most beautiful Greek theatres in Italy, with a fascinating history, including subsequent use as a water mill! The Greeks knew how to site their theatres - the backdrop is stunning.

Very well preserved Ancient Greek theatre that seated 15000 spectators. The best site in the archaeological park by far.

I wasn't expecting that much of it - but it was truly amazing: a beautiful large greek theatre with a lovely view (which is even used these days for plays!) and a dreamy roman amphitheatre nearby, with many more to see on this historic site.
