The Flavian Amphitheater is a Roman Colosseum-like amphitheatre from 1st century AD and is the third largest in the entire world with the capacity of forty thousand. Although now in ruins, the main attraction of this structure lies in its well preserved underground interior as well as the derelict exterior where only the seagulls hover as spectators. The construction of the structure was started during the reign of Vespasian Caesar and during its infamous journey it witnessed many persecutions with wild beasts as well as guillotines. The cage lifts and their gears are still intact at the Flavian Amphitheater, so is the marble interior with arched doors, columns and so on.

  • This is an amazing place & well worth a visit. The structure is so impressive in itself but our day was made really special by the wonderful people there, who couldn't do enough for us. Sergio is an expert on the place, the area, languages & the history. His obvious passion for the site was a true delight. Vittorio was also a real pleasure to meet, with lots engaging of stories to tell. We couldn't believe our luck in having found a fascinating place & such warm, kind, friendly & knowledgeable people.

  • 3rd largest coliseum in Italy but no one was there! Absolutely breathtaking with a complete floor. I had the place to myself. Harbour and square are worth a visit too.

  • Amazing huge amphitheater, excellently preserved. It is possible to walk below the ground and see the structure from below.

  • Soooooo.....I'm a self confessed Roman history geek...but this place blew me away. I've visited many ampitheaters but this one is spectacular!!! At ground level it appears to be similar to very much like many other ruins....but then you head underground to the corridors and chambers that run under the entire structure. Amazingly well preserved and filled with ancient stonework this place is a must see!

  • 3rd largest amfitheater i Italy. Very good Italian/English texts about the building and use of it. Undortunately not possible to climb up to the seats.
