This was the first building we saw as we entered the site. It is like walking into a newly finished building. This amphitheatre was finished 150 years before the Colosseum in Rome and seats 20,000 people. Amazing.

Of course, this Amphiteatre is much smaller than the one in Rome. But this one has also a story to tell. And much older story.

This was one of the most atmospheric of the large public buildings in Pompeii. It is not as large as Rome's Collosseum, but is substantially more complete.

This amphitheater is well preserved, and illustrates pretty well what a gladiator fighting arena looks like, as opposed to one where chariot races occurred.

I've been to Pompeï several times since 1980 and have never been able to see the amphitheatre from above. But maybe this is a good thing... You can walk onside in ground level and visit the space underneath the benches and get a feel of...More
