After a long and meticulous restoration, the highest levels of the amphitheater, the fourth and the fifth, the spaces that two thousand years ago were reserved for the “plebes”, with seats numbered on the wooden poles  –  will reopen and can be visited in groups starting  November 1st . The  view from the Coliseum from the arena at 40 meters high is spectacular!

“It will be an unforgettable spectacle – comments the Italian Minister of Culture opening the new path – an incredible experience that every tourist will bring with him.”
