As you come through the main entrance this is the first large structure you will see and being inside it takes you back to all the films you have ever seen involving chariot races and gladiators. Simply amazing

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.
