The second largest in the world after the Colosseum, and one of the oldest in the roman world, it is also famous for being the starting point for Spartacus' rebellion. Unfortunately only a part of the outer ring is fully standing, the one facing south,...More

Very impressive building and a most interesting place to visit. We had the place totally to ourselves so didn't have the hustle and bustle like the colosseum that we visited the previous week. A worthwhile place and a hidden gem.

Easy to get blase if you have been to Pozzuoli or Pompeii, let alone the Colosseum, prior to visiting this one. While it has lost much of the superstructure the below the stage element is magnificent. Very quiet and well worth a visit. The ticket...More

Good morning. I’m sorry I won’t be a good help for you, because I didn’t search for an English guide at the time. But I’m sure you are right. They must have them in stock for the summer season.
