If you’re a Pink Floyd can, you’ll be in awe of this incredibly well preserved amphitheatre as they played to no audience here in 1972. This aside, it’s a fantastic archaeological site, as is the rest of Pompeii. My only criticism would be that there...More

The Anfiteatro is fantastic and one of the largest Anfiteatro in all historical italy. It’s self was worth the entrance fee. Don’t miss it, even that is quite far from the main entrance.

As you come through the main entrance this is the first large structure you will see and being inside it takes you back to all the films you have ever seen involving chariot races and gladiators. Simply amazing

This amphitheatre is the oldest in the Roman world. It could hold up to 20,000 spectators. Watch out for the fresco paintings of gladiators.

One of my favourite buildings in Pompeii and so impressive. Amazing how much is still standing and I like the fact viewing is restricted to just the central arena. Much better than having people trample all over the seating areas. It’s a large structure and...More

This was the first building we saw as we entered the site. It is like walking into a newly finished building. This amphitheatre was finished 150 years before the Colosseum in Rome and seats 20,000 people. Amazing.

I was worried as we walked towards it that you couldn't get inside, but was thrilled to find the tunnel open to visitors. It was a fantastic experience to stand on the gladiator field and look around the amphitheatre, which is incredibly well preserved. You...More
