  • This amphitheatre (or at least what's left) has nothing exceptional. The Italy has much better to discover. It is located right next to the Office of tourism of the Piazza Sant'Oranzo, which makes it essential

  • When you see it in the square it is hard to believe that this work perhaps Augustus ' age Roman who has remained buried and concealed almost to the present day, since it was uncovered in the first half of ' 900. Amazing other Yes the fact that what we see in the square is only part of the structure since on it were built buildings of historical importance, including the Church of St. Mary, which obviously cannot be shot down. What you see scholars have estimated that the total capacity exceeds 20,000 spectators. The decorations were discovered when discovered are kept in the City Museum and represent the use at that time she was using these structures similar to the Coliseum that is hunting and killing of wildlife also exotic captured, combats between gladiators and condemned to death. Even today it is used for shows and performances, obviously not of that cruelty during the summer and for the crib in the winter season. Located in the central piazza s. Oronzo that has visible around its perimeter the column dedicated to the Saint with the same statue on top of it, and the Seat, also called Seat here, you must for the discovery of the historic city centre.
