Just a few kilometers separate Caserta from Capua, a prosperous and lively city of Ancient Rome, whose name is still present in that of the modern city, Santa Maria Capua Vetere.
Visit the Campano Amphitheater, probably the model for the Colosseum in Rome, still standing out in an excellent state of preservation. Nearby, you can also access the Gladiator Museum, which still retains part of its decorations and shows a reconstruction of a real gladiator fight. Admire the Mitreo, a small treasure found almost by accident during excavations for the construction of a building. It is one of the most intact testimonies of the practices around the cult of the god Mitra, where you will get the chance to see frescoes and seating dating back to the 3rd century AD.
