When the Romans took over after the Greeks they build this Roman theater, a couple of hundreds meter from the Greek Theater.

This Roman ruin is part of a vast collection of ruins to walk around and enjoy. The ampitheatre is not as well preserved as the Greek theatre on site but is still impressive and fascinating to see.

The Roman theatre unlike the Greek theatre can only be seen from a walk way above, the Greek theatre you can walk amongst the stones. The Roman theatre has a lot of vegetation growing on it but you can clearly make out the component parts....More

Can walk or bus to this area. Plenty of historic places around and this is one of them. More suitable to adults than young children

The remains of the Roman forum are part of the complex that includes the Greek theatre and Dionysios' ear etc. The remains are significant and well worth seeing. After finishing the sights a gelato or a granita is a must as it is quite hot.

This is an amazing Amphitheater that was built about 2,000 years ago by the Romans. It could originally seat 20,000 people and was much taller than what remains today. It is very interesting to see all the seats, stairways and tunnels and recognize the many...More
