This is the second largest amphitheater and we thought it was just as impressive as the Colosseum in Rome. Sad that there were hardly any tourists there as it is really worth seeing. But Capua is further away from other major tourist attractions in Campania...More

An almost unknown colosseum to Americans it is well worth going out of your way to spend time to visit. No admission cost no crowds and beautiful countryside

The amphitheater is impressive, especially parts that are under the main stage. All the construction and cages are very well preserved. And unlike the Colosseum in Rome, you can really see it and wonder around as much as you want. Unfortunately, illustrations and explanations are...More

I had an amazing time visiting here at night. There is a restaurant that over looks the site and a wonderful park with great gelato close by. If you're in the area in the evening enjoy a relaxing evening here

A little on the difficult side to find - we spotted the Museo first, which is included along with the Gladiator Museum - small but charming, the Mithraeum, and entry to the Amphitheatre. This is second in size to the Colisseum in Rome, and whilst...More

Certainly worth a visit to this site. Probably one of the lest known tourist attractions. The entrance fee is cheap (2.50 euros), and you can wander freely around the site, including the underground area's where you can get a feel of the conditions that the...More

It seems in Italy dogs are allowed everywhere. Did not see them at the anfiteatro, but did see them in malls.
