The Anfiteatro is fantastic and one of the largest Anfiteatro in all historical italy. It’s self was worth the entrance fee. Don’t miss it, even that is quite far from the main entrance.

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 amphitheatre is the oldest in the Roman world. It could hold up to 20,000 spectators. Watch out for the fresco paintings of gladiators.

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.

Lovely to see and walk in/under/around. This gives you an idea of the scale of entertainment in everyday Pompeii. So glad I have seen this

On entrance this was our first introduction to Pompeii. Fabulous example of stadium and currently has Pink Floyd exhibition. Due to rains it was rather puddle ridden. A great slice of history.
