Pozzuoli Things to Do: 12 reviews and 28 photos
I wish I'd been able to visit the amphitheatre, but it is closed on Tuesdays.
It is a huge and magnificent structure, seating up to 20 000 people and once the third largest in all Italy.
Although you cannot visit the seating area itself you can visit the underground chambers which housed the gladiators pre-performance, and the wild beats they killed (or which killed them). There are some lovely bits of carved masonry around the exterior, visible from the road; they come from the various buildings, temples and shrines which once stood in the vicinity of the amphitheatre.
Open every day except Tuesday, and 25th December, 1st January and 1st May from 0830 until one hour before dusk. Tickets cost 4 euro according to
but be prepared for an increase. Italian official websites are not always kept up-to-date.
Address: Via Nicola Terracciano
Directions: Turn right when you leave the Metro station, then right again once you meet Via Solfatara. The amphitheatre is on your right, maybe a hundred metres away. Keep following the road round to find the entrance.
