Roman Amphitheatre Or Piazza Anfiteatro - Review

The amphitheatre to host the traditional gladiatorial shows and games was built in the second half of the 1st century A.D. This archaeological treasure houses number of building built since then including the work of famous architects like Lorenzo Nottolini. It was renovated and rebuilt multiple times and the proofs of which were discovered in the 19th century. The archeological collectibles include the coins belonging to the reign Emperor Claudius and the inscription that suggest that 100000 sestertii were donated by Quintus Vibius of the Flavian age.

Successively, other buildings, used as houses and, for a certain period, even as prisons, were added to the structures that had survived abandon and plunder. Between 1830 and 1839, following a project by the architect Lorenzo Nottolini, the buildings occupying the ancient arena were pulled down and the inner area, its profile slightly adjusted, became the present day piazza.

The remains of the Roman amphitheatre are preserved, incorporated in buildings bordering the present day Piazza dell' Anfiteatro, in the northern part of the town.

The elliptic shape of the piazza corresponding, to a great extent, to the area of the ancient arena, is the result of a 19th century restoration that permits us to appreciate the volume and the general outline of the ancient monument. Besides, on the outer perimeter, along the present day Via dell' Anfiteatro, we can see some of the original walls, in particular in front of Piazza Scalpellini and to the north, between the eastern gate, the only ancient one that remains and Via del Portico.

Roman Amphitheatre Or Piazza Anfiteatro, Lucca Reviews

  • Oh my gosh what a beautiful little square in a cute little town! When you walk into it, the whole place just seems to want to give you a hug. I haven't tried the restraunts in the square but it's be a good spot to sit and take in the while view.

  • Delicious chicken caesar salads and pasta. They slow cook the chicken so that it melts in your mouth, the salad is fresh and the serving staff are gracious. What's not to love, try it and see if you agree. Besides, the piazza provides a lovely atmosphere.

  • very pleasant. there is a significant lack of the usual "selfie stick" pushers and hawkers here which makes a change from the other places we visited in Italy. It is still very lively and there is a wide selection of bars and restaurants here. Lucca offers places which are yet to be spoilt by mass tourism. recommended highly.

  • Great atmosphere, lovely restaurants, lots of interesting shops nearby. A Roman amphitheatre turned into a modern day meeting place.

  • This is built on the old Roman amphitheatre and still has the shape. Lots of restaurants and souvenir shops. A good place to stop for a coffee. The food is overpriced but it is a great place to people watch and central to the shops.
