Part of the larger vast Roman town near Urbisaglia and covered by the entry ticket for the whole ruins (see separate review on Parco Archeologico di Urbs Salvia) and the close by abbey at Fiastra (see separate review on Abbidia di Fiastra), the whole amphitheatre still exists but wouldn’t be recognised as such from the outside as it is quite small and crowned by a complete circle of trees. However, the inside is more like an amphitheatre with what’s left of the banked seating still visible and the whole site being nicely shaded by the aforementioned trees – very atmospheric. It appears that local concerts are held within the amphitheatre, a stage having been set up at one end and rows of seating laid out in the middle. Probably a nice intimate “venue” if you can make any of the events. Definitely worth a visit and walk around though, but you don’t need a huge amount of time (<1 hour) unless you want to linger inside. Certainly value for money as included in the €7/adult for the nearby medieval fort, Roman ruins and abbey.

Urbs Salvia is a small archeological side but a very interesting one. Two young guides provide a very good tour of the area with very informative assistance. A good visit.

We loved the atmosphere of the amphitheatre - there are not many complete examples left any more - and although this is small by comparison to Verona it just oozes charm and other-worldliness.............as well as the summer concerts, you can get a guided tour - ask for Leonardo if possible - so very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. If there is no event on, just soak up the atmosphere, take a picnic and revel in the peace of the place.

The ancient amphitheatre and the ruins of the Roman "colonia" of Urbs Salvia behind it are interesting all year, but especially in the summer, when Urbisaglia holds its annual festival of "teatro antico", with a few nights of Greek and Roman plays, put on by companies from all over Italy and sometimes even abroad. The performances take place in the ruins of the amphitheatre. If you come by car you park in a field. There's a small drinks-stall. Sometimes just interesting, sometimes very good indeed. The programme tends to be announced rather late (for info, pester Urbisaglia tourist office - 0733506566), but it's round about the end of July / beginning of August, so a visit can be combined with the stagione lirica at Macerata. Seating is limited in the amphitheatre, so if you want to be sure of good seats (= close to the stage) buy your tickets as early as possible. It's sometimes possible to get them from the Bance delle Marche (ask at any branch), but if it isn't contact the tourist office (number as above).
