Amphitheater of Ancient Capua: 2-Hour Private Guided Tour

1. Amphitheater of Ancient Capua: 2-Hour Private Guided Tour

On a 2-hour tour of the archeological site of ancient Capua you’ll visit the Roman amphitheater of Spartacus, the Gladiator Museum, and Santa Maria Capua Vetere, the temple dedicated to the god Mitra. Capua was the birthplace of the gladiator revolt led by Spartacus against the Roman Empire, which arose due to the inhumane conditions the gladiators suffered. The battle ended with the complete defeat of the rebels and Spartacus met his death on the field. Thousands were crucified by Crassus along the Appian Way, a road built by Appius Claudius in 312 B.C. to connect Rome with Capua. Visitor the Gladiator Museum with your guide. See the Temple of Santa Maria Capua Vetere, dedicated to the god Mitra. The cult of Mitras is of Persian origin, and was almost certainly brought to Rome by the prisoners of war who later became gladiators. Please note that the amphitheater is closed on Mondays.
