The Roman Theater was built in the 1st century BC, under emperor Augustus, and renovated in 57 AD, with a capacity for 5000 people. It was abandoned in the 4th century AD. The 1755 earthquake threw it in complete oblivion, covering it with rubble. It wasn't until the 1960s that proper excavations of the site begun.

Opening hours: Tue. to Sun. 10 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.
