It is the better preserved part of the park. Good signage, good information. I read somewhere in reviews that the Greek theatre was even better, which was not the case. In general, the accessible area of the park is fairly small, if schedule is tight...More

It's worth coming to this archeological area, where the two theaters as well as some interesting (but dark!) caves have been preserved. Accessibility is very good.

Close to the Greek Theatre, the Roman Amphitheatre benefits from a number of information boards (something lacking in the Greek area).........Grizzly goings on in the old days until Gladiator shows were banned around 400 AD.......

Part of the Archeological Park. Great views of the Amphitheater but a good half of the site is closed for restoration (late February 2018) so you can't view it from all sides or descend on ground level.

These are the ruins of a small Roman theatre, which are quite overgrown, and which you can't get near. Not a disaster if you were to miss this one. There are plenty of others!

When the Romans took over after the Greeks they build this Roman theater, a couple of hundreds meter from the Greek Theater.

This Roman ruin is part of a vast collection of ruins to walk around and enjoy. The ampitheatre is not as well preserved as the Greek theatre on site but is still impressive and fascinating to see.

The Roman theatre unlike the Greek theatre can only be seen from a walk way above, the Greek theatre you can walk amongst the stones. The Roman theatre has a lot of vegetation growing on it but you can clearly make out the component parts....More

Can walk or bus to this area. Plenty of historic places around and this is one of them. More suitable to adults than young children
