Unless you are a huge fan of Roman architecture, you will find the Amphitheatre at Pozzuoli a bit of a let down. The underground passages are amazing, so from that perspective, it is totally worth it. What is above ground is not all that visually...More

You can almost still hear the roar of gladiators and lions here... Apparently the inspiration for the Colosseum in Rome (though I'm not sure of the truth of that) this is the 3rd largest ampitheatre in Italy, and it really is a breath-taking feat of...More

Myself and my husband went here and it was amazing, full of History. Very cheap to get. Excellent views of everywhere. Pozzuoli is not overcrowded so we felt very comfortable in the heat as well walking around. Everything you see is the way it is...More

Another interesting site included in the multi site ticket with Baia. Supposedly the biggest amphitheatre. Beautifully preserved. Quiet when we visited. Parked in the nearby public car park but if you buy the Campania Artecard you can get there by train.

This little gem tucked away in Pozzuoli isn't overcrowded with tourists because nobody knows about it. They keep what they have found in situ so you can see all the ruined bits as well as what is standing. You can walk on the floor of...More

Lovely and very cheap. It costs 4 euros to get in, but as we had been to Cuma Archeological Park the day before it was free on the same ticket. It's quite small - just the amphitheatre there so it doesn't take long to visit....More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon. Parking was found nearby (lucky?) and the price of admission was reasonable. A large and very well preserved amphitheater. These types of ruins can be an acquired taste but it's hard not to appreciate the effort that went into constructing...More

The people were pleasantly nice and explained some of the History of this Amphitheater. They seemed more intrigue about where we were from, but nothing compares to their over 2000 years of History in the region.
