We lived about 30 minutes from here and took all our visitors to see it! It's a lesser known colosseum but has an amazing history about Spartacus and the early gladiators. You can also explore the tunnels underneath the colosseum, which feels like you are...More

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...More
