The visit allows you to learn more about the rich past of the city Along the walk there are illustrative panels with some descriptions and there is a ticket to be paid at the entrance Highly recommended is the visit to the Liberti house inside

Surrounded by older buildings including Bellini's birthplace built on top of part of the Roman Theatre. Typical Roman amphitheatre style but some of the passage ways behind are exceedingly tall. Acoustics good. Disappointed that the concerts don't start till September.

Multi level amfitheater with history of thousands years which becomes more real once you see various escavated elements spread over ten meters deep construction.

Not so impresive as others, but still huge part of history. People were so kind to tell and explain a lot about the place. I really appreciate that there is english signs and boards with information. Very useful when you dont speak Italian :))

Absolutely loved this place. The amphitheatre itself has much more going for it than the one at Taormina and the way it has been built on through the centuries is amazing. The Renaissance house is a little gem to visit too!

This theater is like a mini version of the Colosseum in Rome. Great place to visit with lots of history

Firstly my views may be biased as an architect and with a conservation background. Also, we visited on the first sunday of a month (when it is free entrance). I would not have been disappointed even if I had paid the 6 euros entrance. As...More

Their web site site says that the re-opening has been delayed to March 28 because of weather, and they are normally closed on Mondays. This was from a translated page from the authority that runs it.
