This amphitheater is unique as it sits in the middle of a modern urban setting, surrounded by newer buildings. It is interesting to see the layers of history in and around this ancient Greek/Roman structure. Would love to see a concert here!

Entrance fee is fairly reasonable, and you get to see a very cool Roman theatre from the 1 or 2nd century AD. It's still in use, so the museum aspects are a little lacking, but if you want to see a big Roman structure it's...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.
