  • A great big arena. To see it in its glory watch the old Charlton Heston movie - Ben Hur and then come see it. The chariot scene was allegedly filmed here. It is a romantic place to have lunch. :)

  • Historically an amazing place! But the view of the place itself isn't visually striking. Everything around is beautiful. You can see a bit of the structure thats left.

  • One of the oldest places of the human history, now it's a huge green meadow when you can imagine the stateliness and the beauty of the past time

  • I liked it because I studied its history but today there's nothing left of its ancient glory except the green.

  • Historically speaking it's cool to know what happened where you're standing. Visually you're not going to be blown away. Really just the oval shape of the ground is left with some stone ruins left.
