“Roman amphitheatre”

Anfiteatro Romano Di Paestum
Ranked #5 of 27 things to do in Paestum
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This Roman addition to the mainly Greek site is interesting and also shows how decisions of one can destroy so much (a road was build across half of it in 1930 but reportedly the civil engineer responsible was jailed for it).

A small Roman amphitheatre, interesting in itself, but pales when compared to the three amazing Greek temples nearby. Only half of the amphitheatre has been excavated as an idiotic civil engineer built a road across the other half in 1930.

Probably if this would have been the only ruins left in Paestum, I would have visited it because it is interesting, but it shades in insignificance with the three standing temples. Still have very interesting features

The main attractions at Paestum are the Greek temples which are remarkably intact. The more recent Roman addition to the site - the amphitheatre built around 2000 years ago - has been split in two by a modern road and only the remains of the western section are now visible. They are not worth a special visit, more an extra curiosity when visiting the temples.
