Butrint Things to Do: 84 reviews and 158 photos


There are 23 rows of seats, divided into five sections by six sets of staircases. The first row of seats was decorated with lions' legs. The original banks of seating would have given a capacity of 2,500 people.At the very back of the theatre, where the natural rock is exposed, shelves were cut into the rock to provide extra seating. At the uppermost point, shallow steps were cut to give the impression of seating and make the theatre look larger than it was.
