The feature that makes this theatre unique is the Diazoma. This passageway between the seats of the Cavea lies directly on a hill in the lower part, but is elevated on vaults in the upper part. The skenae frons is typical of the Antonine period, being decorated with friezes relating to Dionysius, and also to the Gigantomakhia. Many fragments are... More

There's quite a bit to see around the site and well trod paths and signs to guide you. It's very close to Side. Large car park. Was nice to go off season as... More

We have been here a few times. The whole area has ruins dotted around it and on the road from the car park into town there are even ruins of houses you can just wonder into. The amphitheater does charge a small entrance fee but it's well worth it. Climb the steps and take a seat. Awesome.
