Antique Theatre Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Built under the rule of emperor Trajan (98-117) the theatre was discovered unwittingly in 1972 during building site excavations. With seating capacity of 3 500, it hosts summer programmes of concerts and opera. The 28 rows of benches are set in a classic semi-circle facing the stage with three levels of colonnades. You are standing at the top of the " Water Hill ", so called because this was where drinking water was once distributed to the population.
