I didn't know they had this large theatre here, so I was surprised. You can see it from outside both from the road, or from the city wall.

You don't need to pay to see this theatre as good views can be obtained from above (take the first left before the city gate). It's a breathtaking reminder of Roman culture with much remaining after two millennia

This site is smack in the middle of old Volterra, adjacent to the medieval city walls. It's a beautifully well-preserved Roman theatre. Well worth a visit.

If you are in Volterra, its definitely worth a look. If you have already been to Rome and seen the Forum, you will understand how the ruins are built upon older ruins... an easy walk outside the walls, and is covered by the museum card....More

You really shouldn't miss this beautiful example of ancient Roman architecture. Even if you choose to stay on top and not walk down into it, it's a sight to behold and admire. How did they manage to create this without any modern tool?!?!
