Spent Sunday morning exploring the amphitheatre and theatre, before heading to the CIAC volunteer info at the Congresso, getting ready for a week of work as a volunteer at the XVIIIth International Congress of Classical Archaeology.

The amphitheatre is not as well preserved as some I've seen, but interesting nonetheless. The theatre is pretty amazing, but I imagine a lot of it is rebuilt. There were some interesting buildings in the vicinity of the theatre, one in particular had some wall painting still visible.
