Roman theater of Grumento Nova
The archaeological area of Grumentum , a flourishing Lucanian center conquered by Rome during the third century BC, represents a unique example in Basilicata of a Roman urban layout which has been almost entirely preserved to this day. The visit takes place in an exceptionally suggestive landscape in which the public and private spaces of the Roman city are articulated, still delineated by the regularity of the ancient road axes. From the theater you can reach the Italic temple, the domus with mosaics and, along the pavement of the decumanus, the area of the Forum with the public - civil and religious buildings: Capitolium, Cesareo, Porticus, Curia and Basilica. The route then continues to the imperial baths and the monumental amphitheater, strategically positioned on the eastern edge of the hill.
