Description

The Gubbio Roman Theatre has been constructued during the first century aD. by using square blocks of limestone from the local area. The walls' covering is ashlar. The tiers, having a diametr of 70 meters, are divided by short stairs in four parts.
Externally to the tiers there is a colonnade of arches on pillars. The upper one, with another colonnade, today missing, would have formed a portich going all around the theatre. 

In summertime (July/August) it becomes a suggestive scenario for playing masterpieces of classical authors.
