The Marcello Theater is an ancient Roman theater, designed by Julius Caesar to compete with the theater built by his rival, Pompey. The theater was completed only under the reign of Augustus, however, around 17 BC and dedicated to his nephew, Marcello. This structure seems to be one of the earliest Roman theaters to have been preserved, because before this point theatrical performances were held in temporary wooden structures. Indeed, the Marcello Theater pretty much established the framework for future Roman theaters, including possibly the Coliseum. It is located at the southern end of the Campus Martius and today is partially preserved, sitting adjacent to the partially preserved remains of a temple dedicated to Apollo.

In this theater, the cavea (where the spectators sat) was supported by a stone structure, while the stage was constructed with a multi-storey wall, decorated with columns, niches and statues. It could seat about 20,000 spectators. After checking out the theater, head over to the monument of Vittorio Emanuele II, the Church of Santa Maria in Trastevere and then Tiberina Island.
