Amphitheatre of Pompei

Interesting
The oldest known amphitheatre in the world (dating from 70 BC), situated slightly out of town so that the crowds did not affect life in the centre of Pompeii, had a capacity of up to 20 000 spectators. Next to the amphitheatre, the large palestra was used for training athletes.
