Lonely Planet review

Built in the 2nd century for the Roman garrisons, this amphitheatre, about 800m south of Flórián tér, could accommodate up to 15,000 spectators and was larger than the Colosseum in Rome. The rest of the military camp extended north to Flórián tér. Archaeology and classical-history buffs taking bus 86 to Flórián tér should get off at III Nagyszombat utca; HÉV passengers should get off at the Tímár utca stop.
