The theater is extremely well preserved and is amazing to see the marvelous work of the builders of the ancient times, considering the means they had to do the work. The theater is around 200 meters away from the ancient roman theater which gives to...More

This is a very well preserved/restored Greek amphitheater. It is impressive from every angle and offers great views of the surrounding area. The Greeks really must have put on some good shows to spend all the time & effort to construct such a marvel several...More
