Step back in time with a private Caesar Augusta Roman Theater Museum tour.

Built during the reign of Emperor Augustus, the theater could accommodate over 6,000 spectators in its heyday and is one of the largest discovered in the Roman Empire. As you wander through the well-preserved ruins, your guide will bring to life the thrills and spectacles once witnessed here.

The museum showcases a variety of artifacts found during excavations, including pottery, sculptures, and mosaics, providing a fascinating glimpse into the everyday life of Roman Zaragoza.

Emily put together an incredible trip! Emily put together an amazing trip for me through the Andalusia area of Spain. From the minute I touched down in Malaga, Emily and her team made sure I met up with all of my drivers and private tour guides in each city. Every tour was incredible and each guide was extremely knowledgable on the city's history, culture, food scene and architecture. I highly recommend Emily Matthews and her team and would use her again the next time I go to Spain, Portugal or Morocco.
