Not so impresive as others, but still huge part of history. People were so kind to tell and explain a lot about the place. I really appreciate that there is english signs and boards with information. Very useful when you dont speak Italian :))

An amazing piece of a archaeology nestled in the heart of the city, the theatre and odeon are well worth a visit. The theatre structure itself is very impressive, and the ability to wander through the walkways under the theatre is great. There are also...More

Their web site site says that the re-opening has been delayed to March 28 because of weather, and they are normally closed on Mondays. This was from a translated page from the authority that runs it.
