This theater located in Pompei really gives a nice feeling of what life must have been in the city before the Vesuve explosion. Well worth sitting in and reflecting on life of Pompeians.

Do not miss this on your visit! It is a smaller theatre within the ruins but is very interesting even though it may be 'off the main path'. Note: This is a part of the main Scavi di Pompeii sites, and you don't need an...More
