This old theatre in Rome is definitely worth a visit. I don't feel as if many people know about it, as it has never been crowded on the 3 separate occasions that I have visited it.

Another very interesting piece of Roman history. No cost and easy to get to. We stopped by on our way through to the Jewish Ghetto area.

Tucked away off to one side of Piazza Venezia is this amazing ruin. It is a substantial multi-storey theatre building that just seems to appear during our wanderings. It was a nice little find and looking from it gave a nice back drop towards the...More

We were walking aimlessly around the city and stumbled upon this amazingly interesting building. The blending of the different stages of the building over the years is so fascinating.

I never used the hop on/off bus but as I dodged them I noticed the theatre across the road. It’s well worth a detour to have a nosey around. As with a great deal of sites in Rome it’s interesting to see how the old...More

I didn't go looking for these ruins and stumbled upon them through the use of the hop on & off tour bus. These remains of what must have been a impressive building are one of the many constant reminders of the age of this city....More

This is a relatively well preserved Ancient Roman theater next to the Ghetto Ebraico. It was built in the time of Emperor Augustus, and was the biggest theater in Ancient Roman. In its construction for the first time in Rome were used baked bricks. In...More

We did a free ancient Rome walking tour from italyvacationtips. I've always imagined Ancient Rome to be a little bit sparser, a little bit smaller, and certainly that the temples would be farther apart. God/ess/s/es soveriegnty or something. But no, seeing all of this has...More

Ghetto
The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly

community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the
