Ancona: amphitheatre

Founded by the Greeks of Siracusa, Ancona was later an important Roman city. Two important remains date from that period: the Amphitheatre and the Arco di Traiano, dominating the new port constructed after the Dacian Wars. From the amphitheatre, located on the hill that was home to the Greek acropolis, it is still possible to see the steps of the cavea and, moving through the adjacent streets, the magnificent basaments integrated in the medieval houses.
