The Grand Theatre

The Teatro Grande in Pompeii was built in the 5th century B.C and rebuilt in the 1st century A.D. It sat as many as 5,000 spectators. There were 3 price ranges: marble terraces up close, with wooden seats for two; the main section, and cheap seats up near the canvas rooftop.

The exclusive  box seats offer a view in addition to the stage – the gladiators’ barracks and courtyard out back.
