Roman Theater, one of the vestiges of the Roman city of Tergeste. At the time of its construction, it was located outside of the city walls and right by the sea, which throughout the centuries has retreated to where the Piazza Unità ends. It was...More

You can only view this antiquity from street level but you can imagine how it might have felt in Roman times, when Trieste was an important Roman frontier garrison. You can see the brick works, the drainage and stage. Apparently, when built, it was on...More

Having been spoilt by amphitheater’s in France and other parts of Italy this doesn’t stand out as amazing but nonetheless interesting enough as it is not too far to walk

This is a really well preserved little roman amphitheatre but suffers a bit from being open to one of the city’s main thoroughfares, thus removing any air of mystery. The upside of this is that you can view from the footpath totally for free and...More

This is not the largest amphitheatre in the world but is very well preserved and interesting to see. Although it is fenced off, it is easy to view from the railings or benches on the pavement which assure that you are very close. Definitely worth...More

This is buried in the middle of Trieste and could easily be missed. It can be viewed from the road. It is a shame that more is not made of it in terms of displays, models etc.

This is small and was closed off when we were thee but you can see a lot from outside. It is very interesting and deserving of a few moments of your time.

As a 2,000 year-old Roman amphitheater, it's in pretty good condition. It's smaller than most, but still impressive. However, some 'jobsworth' at the local council has approved placing 5 modern sculptures of a man shouting, carefully placed to resemble theater-goers of 2,000 years ago. What...More

Fascinating historically monument that has stood for centuries. Smaller than I imagined but no less impressive. Slightly spolied by the manekins placed there as a presumed art installation. I know art is subjective but I do not think these added anything and to the contrary,...More

This is a nice enough, well preserved amphitheatre but there is no more to see than is shown in the picture above. You can’t access the site, just stand beside it and view it from the angle that the above photo was taken. It is...More
