The seating is still covered with earth and grass, so consider bringing a picnic lunch to enjoy just outside of the ring.

  • Amazing work in restoring the site and giving a great impression of what it may have looked centuries ago. A little walk away from the city centre and probably a little less visited due to this...

  • Very cool piece of history. I was intrigued to learn that the Roman Empire had stretched this far north. The fun part about this place is that you can explore everything. My kids had fun going below and seeing where the gladiators and animals were kept before being sent up to compete.
  • Fantastic. You get to go EVERYWHERE. Up, down, in, under, around... the only place blocked off was due to a danger of the wall collapsing. Try every entrance and every door! Take the western exit to go to the outside and around the stadium into it from another entrance. Parking is free for this site only. Steep hike up on the vineyard field but it is beautiful. WORTH EVERY PENNY. Bathroom is clean (soap dispenser works, you just have to pull the small tab toward you). Attendant is friendly and knowledgeable enough of English to help us. Checked vaccinated status which is nice.
