Some Amphitheatre Photos

This Amphitheatre Photos page


The photographs below are of Amphitheatres --- mostly in Europe and the Middle East --- around the Mediterranean.

These are mostly remnants of Greek (and Roman) theatres that were presumably used to present dramatic and comedic plays --- and probably used for various public meetings.

I was struck by the setting of an amphitheatre in Sicily. I saw a photo of the amphitheatre in a picture book of Italy.

The theatre overlooks a valley, with the Mediterranean sea in the distance. I would like to see that amphitheatre some day, and sit there with some fruit, bread, cheese, black olives, and/or wine (Mediterranean fare) and enjoy the view.

In case I never make it to that amphitheatre, at least I will have these photos to enjoy.

Some maps may be shown with the photos, to help show the location of the amphitheatres.

I start this collection out with photos of the theatre at Segesta, Sicily, which caused me to dream of visiting it on a balmy day.

I may add photos (and location maps) of other amphitheatres, over time.

In the meantime, you can try WEB SEARCH links near the bottom of this page.

How the photos are presented :

Each photo is shown scaled to a width proportional to the width of your browser window.

Each photo is a link to a new window (or tab) that shows the image at its natural size. Click on any photo to see it in a separate window.

Close (or minimize) the separate window(s) to access this window again.

If you hold the mouse cursor over a photo, a small pop-up 'balloon' will provide a brief description of the photo, with the pixel-size indicated. (These pop-ups should work in most web browsers.)

Most of the photos are medium- to high-resolution --- more than 500 pixels wide.


The map below shows the location of the Segesta amphitheatre, in northwest Sicily.










For more photos:

It may be a long time (years or never) before I get back to this page to add more photos, so here are some links to WEB SEARCHES for more photos of amphitheatres.

(The spelling 'amphitheatre' is used here instead of 'amphitheater' because it tends to yield more pictures of amphitheatres in Europe rather than amphitheaters in the USA.)

Also, try the Wikipedia - Amphitheatre page, and follow links from that page.
