Part of the Paestum ruins is the amphitheatre which could be missed or confused with the council seating.

This Roman addition to the mainly Greek site is interesting and also shows how decisions of one can destroy so much (a road was build across half of it in 1930 but reportedly the civil engineer responsible was jailed for it).

A small Roman amphitheatre, interesting in itself, but pales when compared to the three amazing Greek temples nearby. Only half of the amphitheatre has been excavated as an idiotic civil engineer built a road across the other half in 1930.

Probably if this would have been the only ruins left in Paestum, I would have visited it because it is interesting, but it shades in insignificance with the three standing temples. Still have very interesting features

The archeological park is really special and it's a great opportunity to learn and understand the Greek political and cultural expansion in Italy. Do miss the local museum.

The amphitheatre is quite spectacular and stands out with the temples amongst the vast ruins of Paestum

You will need at least 2-3 hrs to take in much if not all Paestum. This a small amphitheater that could be easy to miss.

This is probably the weakest bit of an otherwise excellent site. There is not much there that is original, half the thing is hidden under the modern road.
