What we like about this theatre is that it is still being used today. Twice a month performances are being held here. The theatre can have approx 6000 people and the acoustics are great.

Climb to the top level of the Amphitheatre to view the city and make the connection to the Citadel. Good to have a guide to explain details.

Yes! There is an actual path down there. It's a LOT of stairs but easier than navigating the crazy streets. If you go to Open Street Maps and zoom in on the Citadel, just past the parking, you'll see a dotted red line... More
