Just another one of those Roman sites that you pay too much to get into. The theater is partly restored, so you get an idea of what it looked like, but feels 'over restored' compared to the seating area. If history is your thing, you...More

These ruins are in great shape. Try to have a guide explain everything to you. Then check out the acoustics by having someone stand on the stage and speak - perfect.

Preferred Ben Hur (comedy) then Filoctetes) second choice, then Third Nero. Didn’t like the monologue w the older chap (Esquilo play). The latter was boring to us.

This is an impressive sitei. The biggest roman theatre we have seen. On the one side it is good to see that it is still used to its original purpose, ie as a theatre, on the other hand one feels a bit cheated by the...More

Our entire trip to Merida was a wonderful but this place is THE BEST monument in Merida. Even if you are on a short trip, do not miss it - the best Roman ruins in Europe after Rome. So amazing and so much left standing!!!...More

Passing through Marida we walked to the Roman theatre. We three friends were all 60+ and sadly looked it. We requested three senior tickets @€6 each but as we had no passports we were asked for €15 by a very snotty Spanish woman. In UK...More

I managed it solo in two days. However suggested routes are difficult to follow. Would suggest 3 days but with children might what to think about 4 days.

As most people have recommended, I would agree that an overnight stay is worth it. There are many things to see and do and obviously trying the local food is part of the experience of travel. Enjoy!
