The Roman amphitheatre of Assisi is located in the district of Porta Perlici (one of the eight gates of the city).

Not much of the ancient structure has remained: just a wedge of the travertine arch.

The construction of the amphitheatre is from the first half of the first century A.D.

The artifact was developed in two rows of steps in cement work, still partially preserved and visible.

The original elliptical amphitheatre is still visible between the garden wall that borders the ancient area and the medieval buildings formed from the vault.

Ultimately, the Roman amphitheatre is important because it represents one of the most significant examples of reutilization – in the Middle Ages – of a structure of ancient Rome.
