Roman Theatre was built in the second half of the 1st century B.C., however, it disappeared because of succesive constructions. Set against the green tufa hills, on the top of which is situated the Monastery of St. Jerome, the theatre looks very impressivly. At its eastern side there is the lovely ancient church of Saints Sirius and Libera, built in the 10th century.
The Theatre was completely retrieved in the 18th century thanks to Andrea Monga, a wealthy Veronese who bought all the houses that in time had been built over the theatre, demolished them and saved the monument.
The Roman Theatre is used in summer for drama performances and ballets. The theatre complex is constituted of buildings from diverse eras which have been inserted in an evocative natural hillside environment.
