Pozzuoli: Anfiteatro Puteolano a.k.a. Teatro Flavio

This is the third largest Roman Theater in Italy. Construction began in 70AD under the rule of Nero. It had a seating capacity of 40,000 and a large underground area to house caged animals and a lift system to bring them up to the arena.

Here you can see the immensity of the theater

The marble columns are scattered throughout the underground area

For Jessica this was like a trip to Disney Land. As a professional Stage Manager it must have been quite an experience to walk in such an historic place.
