The amphitheater has been cleaned and restored. It sits right in town surrounded by cafes and ancient buildings still used today. The town was advertising bullfights there in October.

Wish I hadn't bothered - for 9 EUR they force you to buy a ticket for the Theatre as well, and neither are really that interesting. Have a look through the fence and spend your money on a crepe instead.

You can park nearby. I went by train, but saw plenty of parking, most on street and free. There was definitely free parking on there road by the railway station which is about a 5-10 minute walk.

Wifi? At a Roman amphitheatre? No. There is neither free nor paid WiFi at the amphitheatre.
