🌟 The Marcello Theatre is located near the Plaza Venice, Rome. It feels like a mini version of the Colosseum at first glance. It is actually an ancient theater that is older than the Colosseum, but it looks very dilapidated without maintenance. 🌟 Ancient theaters in the 1st century BC, typical Roman arena style. It can accommodate about 12,000 viewers, and now you can only see the outside, and can not enter. And just "naked" on the side of the road, you can see [smile and cry] 🌟 The temple of Apollo on the right side of the theater with three elegant columns.
Roman Theater of Marchello. It is located to the south of Piazza Venezia and has a history that is 60 years longer than the Colosseum. Although it is not as big as the Colosseum, it has a bigger backing. The Marcello Theatre was planned by Caesar, the first consul of the Roman Republic. After Caesar was assassinated, his nephew Octavius became the first emperor of the Roman Empire, namely Augustus the Great. In 11 AD, Augustus completed the construction of the theater and named it after his nephew Marcello. The Marcello Theater originally had 20,000 seats and was a semicircular theater. In the 16th century, a palace mansion was added on top of the original theater building, which is now a high-class apartment. In Rome, there are many such "near historical sites" buildings, such as the Temple of Hadrian.
It looks very similar to the arena, but there is no one to maintain it, and it feels even more dilapidated. When I passed by, I accidentally passed by and saw it and I didn't need to charge tickets. It also looks like a circular arena composed of several large stone pillars.
The 1st Rome's Colisseum. It's smaller than the famous one but is awesome like it.
Not to be mistaken for the Colosseum, this is only a very short walk from Piazza Venezia, so it should definitely be something to be seen.
it is less than 10 minutes walking
Similar to Colosseum.
Originally built in the early years of Imperial Rome. As many of the Roman monuments it has had a long and interesting life, with it starting as a theatre and later serving as a fortress.
