The ancient roman theatre in Trieste is not one of the biggest in the world , but it is nice and so easy to visit that if you are in town it'd be silly to miss. Near to the theatre, moreover, are a lot of fashion shops....

We were only in Trieste one day and one night but I would return for longer longer time in a heartbeat. And this Teatro as an example of why. Trieste has quite a story to be told.

It looks quite well preserved. Its a semi circle of seating looking down onto a central area.It was closed when we walked past but can be seen very easyly from the street.

These ruins make for an interesting quick stop on a walking tour of Trieste. Reasonably well preserved it's easy enough to make out the structure of the theatre. You can't actually walk on the ruins, which is probably a good thing in aiding their ongoing preservation.

A nice historical theater in the center of the city. While nothing spectacular they've done the most with what they have, and preserve the relic by keeping visitors off the main area, only to enjoy it in passing.

Well we aimed to view these ruins on our adventures around Trieste. They are very well preserved/rebuilt, none of us could agree how original it all was. Still it is tucked away and a good spot to sit and rest for five minutes before continuing on your journey, worth a look.

While walking around Trieste, after a long day of visiting the Miramare and Duino castles, I came upon this place by accident. Over here, I saw that this place was well-preserved among the rest of the city.

How do you rate Roman ruins? This is a remarkably well-preserved Roman amphitheater. It is well lighted at night, which is when we came upon it. I expected cats, as you see in Rome, but there were none to be seen. It is a good-sized theater with well-preserved steps. It is accessible during the day and it is just along... More

We were on our way up to the castle and walked by this gem. There was a group of schoolchildren performing a play in this Roman Amphitheatre, and it was nice to see that it was still being used. It is on the maps, but you can miss it
