Some Amphitheatre Photos

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 any of these amphitheatres, at least I will have these photos to enjoy.

Some maps are 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 plan to add photos (and location maps) of other amphitheatres, over time.

How the photos are presented :

The photos below are presented on this page in a small size (less than 250x250 pixels). Each photo is a link to a larger size. Click on the small photo to see a larger size photo.

The larger sizes are shown 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.)

Some of the photos are high-resolution --- more than 1,000 pixels horizontally or vertically.
