My husband and I were not disappointed and would recommend the arena to anyone! We were met by Benedetta who was our guide and she was extremely knowledgable, told us all about the history of the arena and answered questions from the group. It was a fantastic place to visit! Rachel and Matt

Benedetta was a knowledgeable and friendly guide who led us into the glorious history of this amphitheater that is older than the Colosseum of Rome. Besides the 30 minutes visit, we were allowed to roam in the arena and even climb to the top level. Definitely worth the visit.

smooth organisation, easy payment and excellent quality. I think the contribution to "Get Your Guide" of 3€ per person is quite a lot.

The guide was terrific. I learned so much and felt part of the history and spirit. I very highly recommend.

Very good guide who took her time to answer all questions and did her job with enthusiasm.
