Massive Theater

A major tourist site, one of the largest Roman theaters I have ever seen. Go and imagine what it used to be. Good for photos.

The Greek Ampitheatre which is situated in the same Archaeological site is better preserved than the Roman Ampitheatre - but the size of the theatre is enormous. Both worth the visit and included in the general tour of what is an extensive conglomeration of ancient public buildings

We recently visited this archeological site, but were very disappointed. The site has the potential to be a first class tourist attraction, but it sorely lacks some very basic care and maintenance. Most of the walking paths were closed off to the visitor and appeared to not have been in use for quite a time. The paths that are used... More

This rather seems like an add-on given there are quite a number of better preserved sites around. It would also seem that this site is the best described and labelled of all the attractions in the park (perhaps they... More

The amphitheatre looks half-excavated and is covered in weeds. Most of the paths are blocked off, and you can only look down on the structure. But the remains are still interesting, and it's a tranquil and relaxing spot.

Still in pretty good shape with lots of signage explaining everything in detail. Do not miss this, close to the Greek amphitheater

The ticket gets you in to see the whole park. The roman theatre is in a poorer state than the Greek one. Interesting nevertheless. Some info would help.
