From Roman times, still active. Performances of music or bull fightings. Beautifully kept. Next to it is another Roman forum.

I'm not sure why but given the hype from the locals about it being virtually intact I was expecting a bit more. Very little background info in English and not that much to it.

The amphitheater has been cleaned and restored. It sits right in town surrounded by cafes and ancient buildings still used today. The town was advertising bullfights there in October.

well worth seeing though it is a bullring inside and has modern simple seating however that probably gives more of an idea of what it actually looked like when in use

This is the first Amphitheatre I have visited and I was blown away with it. You get a real sense of what it must have been like when it was first used. They run regular events which look well worth a visit.

You can park nearby. I went by train, but saw plenty of parking, most on street and free. There was definitely free parking on there road by the railway station which is about a 5-10 minute walk.

Wifi? At a Roman amphitheatre? No. There is neither free nor paid WiFi at the amphitheatre.
