much more interesting than the Colosseum in Rome

An almost unknown colosseum to Americans it is well worth going out of your way to spend time to visit. No admission cost no crowds and beautiful countryside

This colosseum is in it's natural state, not as commercialized as the one in Rome. Quite an interesting site where you can wander through it and just imagine, the crowds, the gladiators, etc. it also had a delicious restaurant there which was very clean and delicious food.

The amphitheater is impressive, especially parts that are under the main stage. All the construction and cages are very well preserved. And unlike the Colosseum in Rome, you can really see it and wonder around as much as you want. Unfortunately, illustrations and explanations are missing, so you have to remember it from your visit to Rome Colosseum, or do... More

Two thousand years ago it seems the three most significant cities in the known world were Rome, Carthage and Santa Maria Capua Vetere. Santa Maria CV was associated with Hannibal's invasion in ~200BC and with the exploits of Spartacus the gladiator who was trained in Santa Maria CV and fought there. The anfiteatro is really impressive and well worth a... More

I enjoyed walking through the anfiteatro ruins. It was very cheap entrance fee and the Arte card gets you in free. Do not miss the underground level. I wish there was some information posted or audio guide available. I recommend seeing if you have some free time. Close to Naples.

I have been to the Colosseum in Rome and this is nearly as impressive. While not as restored as the one in Rome, this has the benefit of not being infested with busloads tourists and their selfie sticks. Went there on a weekday in the middle of August and was alone in the place for over 30 minutes. Saw maybe... More

I had an amazing time visiting here at night. There is a restaurant that over looks the site and a wonderful park with great gelato close by. If you're in the area in the evening enjoy a relaxing evening here

A little on the difficult side to find - we spotted the Museo first, which is included along with the Gladiator Museum - small but charming, the Mithraeum, and entry to the Amphitheatre. This is second in size to the Colisseum in Rome, and whilst it is certainly not as well preserved, it has oodles of its own charm. The... More

Certainly worth a visit to this site. Probably one of the lest known tourist attractions. The entrance fee is cheap (2.50 euros), and you can wander freely around the site, including the underground area's where you can get a feel of the conditions that the Gladiators faced. There is also a small museum on site which has some interesting artifacts... More

The place is worth a visit. Visiting the underground you can get an idea of the backstage of the gladiator's arena.
