Theatre of Marcellus

by admin_wr

Conceived by Julius Caesar, it is an open-air theatre where Romans were able to watch performances of drama and songs. The building was the largest and most important theatre in Ancient Rome; it could originally hold between 11K and 20K spectators. Nowadays the upper floors are divided into multiple apartments, and its surroundings are used as a venue for summer concerts; the Portico d’Ottavia lies to the north west leading to the Roman Ghetto and the Tiber to the south west.
