Roman ruins

Nice to see some Roman ruins away from mainstream tourism and although not large , they are impressive, showing just how advanced the Romans were culturally and technically.

The story of how it was found and the site itself were worth the trek to Volterra. As is the city. We were amazed by this extra to a beautiful hill top town.

Well preserved remains of a Roman Amphitheater and Baths. Quite a sight to see. When viewing the ruins start by going to the overlook and view the site from above to get a look at the complete site before venturing down to the actual ruins. A must see while touring Volterra.

Although we didn't enter the site you get a wonderful view of the Teatro from the walking track above. Good site to see if visiting Volterra

While on a walking tour of Volterra (an awesome city, by the way), we were told that the folks of this city had found a fairly level piece of terrain and had decided to turn it into a soccer field for their youth. During excavation and the leveling of the ground, this ancient Roman amphitheater was uncovered. Yeah, we understood... More

It is rare to find such complete Roman ruins north of Rome and so we enjoyed touring the old Roman Theatre at Volterra very much. There was a research team setting up laser measurement equipment while we were there and it was fascinating to observe them investigating this wonderful archaeological site. There is an admission fee if you want to... More

OK, it is 5 Euros for admission, but you have the chance to see the details and information you wouldn't have gained if you just walk by as most people do! Evenings and mornings are really nice when there aren't many visitors.

Interesting to note that once you've paid you notice that you can see the ruins from slightly above for free. But hey this is 5 euros that will surely pay for restauration work. Good information is provided to get a better understanding of these ruins. Good to note that the 5 euros also gives access to the Etruscan museum.

Five euros admission, However every thing can be seen for free by walking a short distance along the road above it. Worth seeing.

I was instantly enamored with Volterra. This city is a must-see. Right when you think it couldn't get any better, you turn a corner and look down upon Roman ampitheatre ruins. Seriously. It is amazing to imagine Romans here so many years ago...building this incredible structure so high up. The logistics are mind boggling.
