Our first major sight when we arrived in Spoleto was the Roman ruins and the rebuilt in parts amphitheater. Stunning to realise that something built 2000 years ago could be useful today. Highly recommended

There is an entrance fee to pay but don't!! You can see all you need to from vantage points opposite the tourist office. The ruins are quite well preserved and presented but you don't need to pay to see them.

This Roman Amphitheatre is still a testament to the Romans ability to build and preserve their architecture. Its an amazing theater that dates back to the first century.

This is a small Roman theater that has been reasonably well preserved. It is outdoors and easily walked. You might imagine the ancient Spoletans collecting to be entertained by an athletic event, or maybe the ancient version of the Rolling Stones. It does not look...More

2000 years old and still being used. This is worth the long climb up to the top of Spoleto on its own. Throw in some great nearby restaurants and spectacular views. A must see if you're in the region.

The highlight of our recent visit to the Museo Archeologico Nazionale Di Spoleto was to be able to access and view the Roman Theatre up close. It is incredible to think that this structure, believed to have been constructed in the middle of the first...More

One of the surprising things about this place is that it was identified relatively recently (something more than a century ago), and unearthed only a few decades ago; it had been underground for centuries after having been built at the time of Augustus emperor. Small...More
