  • Room for improvement but well worth a visit. Don't go down inside the ruins of the theater but you can visit only from above. There are only two tables that explain the history and architecture of the theater but, honestly, I've done well. A visit is worth

  • the Roman Theatre was brought to light during the fifties of the twentieth century by means of excavations in the locality of Vallebuona. The monument dates back to the late 1st century BC and its construction was certainly financed by wealthy family volterrana of Caecina. The theater is partially excavated along the natural slope of an elevation, in analogy to the Greek theatres. At the end of the third century the theatre was abandoned and near the scenic building was later installed a bath house. In medieval times, the city incorporated the wall that provided to understand the highest part of the bleachers (summa cavea).

  • We bought 14 euros bonus for 5 museums and upon arrival realized that looks perfectly from the outer gates next to the parking...

  • Impressive theater. Best view is from the upper ledge
  • Wonderful well-preserved Roman amphitheater built for 2000 people! There were exhibition of ancient gladiator's fights this time on the stage there but unfortunately security has expelled us because of closing time (17:30) :-(
  • Beautiful view from the ledge above. A must see site in Volterra!
  • Nice place to go
  • Interstellar place to see Roman theater ruins.
