Piazza dell'Anfiteatro Tours

star-5
1 Review
Piazza dell'Anfiteatro
The Piazza dell'Anfiteatro is a large square in the center of historic Lucca. As the name suggests, it was once the site of a Roman amphitheatre, one that was built in the first century and could hold up to 10,000 people. The remains of that structure now lie more than nine feet underground, but the oval shape of the piazza is a direct result of the outline of the amphitheatre.
 
The Piazza dell'Anfiteatro was built in 1830 by demolishing some buildings that had been constructed in the space. It became the site of the town's market, and is the heart of the old city today.

Practical Info

Piazza dell'Anfiteatro in the northeast area of the historic walled city of Lucca. Some elements of the ancient amphitheatre are still visible in the area, including along Via dell'Anfiteatro.
Address: Piazza dell'Anfiteatro, Lucca, Tuscany 55100, Italy
