The park was a really nice spot to stop and eat the lunch we has bought at the market. What is left of the arena walls are overgrown and fenced off, so did not really give a Roman feel the place, but the park was lovely. Lots of flowers in bloom, bright but shady. Nice playground and fountain for children. Perfect for a hot spring day. Great place to rest on route to other Roman sites.

Little park in the former roman amphitheater, part of the roman walk and worth a visit. Though the floor lies some 5 meter below the current park (according to the information given), the higher levels of the theater remain visible today. Amazingly the site was used as a quarry for a long time.

Despite this, a few arches are still visible today which give the visitor a sense of the original scale. The building was included into the ‘defense wall’ that was constructed in a hurry whiles the roman empire was falling. You walk to the ‘Norman gate’ and barrier from here.

The park is now more of a playground for children and the trees provide shade in summer. Good to have a pick-nick or just rest a little on your city walk.
