Definitely you can't miss the Anfiteatro Romano if you go to Benevento. It's one of the town's musts.

We were lucky to have the place almost entirely to ourselves. The theater is in quite good shape and the many views are lovely. You can visit almost all parts of it. At sunset, the light was just beautiful.

This is an excellent example of a Roman Theatre. Also you can walk around and see the site up close. Different to say the Colosseum in Rome. It is very well worth a visit.

A step back in time-music festivals are offered in the summer months--If you appreciate antiquity-this is the place to visit-there is a small entrance fee and parking is nearby-it is also near the city center-there are also coffee - gelato bars close by

I shot a video of my husband in the Teatro Romano in Benevento and shared it with my sisters. It is amazing that they have a monument like this (so big) in such a small city. My husband also shot a video walking into the arena of the Teatro Romano. We are happy that we visited.

For an entry fee of only 2 euros, you get to see a very well preserved Roman Theater, which is in such good condition that it hosts performances even today. Other sight nearby are the Arch of Trajan, and the Corso Garibaldi (a street without traffic where window shoppers can stroll through). There are some authentic Southern Italian restaurants hidden...

It should be a good experience but there was no information and half of it was closed for repairs. Added to this, I was followed around as if I was likely to walk away with a Roman column.
