Amphitheatre of Pompeii

A relatively smaller amphitheatre in Pompeii which predates the Coliseum by almost 100 years. It was buried by Vesuvius, like the rest of Pompeii and is believed to be the oldest stone Roman amphitheatre. It is sometimes used for events in modern times. David Gilmour, of Pink Floyd fame, performed a concert here a few months before we visited. Wish we could have seen it live.

  1. Lovely amphitheater. Good it gets used for modern events just so they do not throw anyone to hungry lions.
