Visiting the amphitheatre’s underground areas is particularly fascinating; they are well preserved and it is easy to see how logistical issues were tackled to enable spectacles to run smoothly. The rooms surrounding the corridors were used to store equipment, machines, sets, and animal cages, which were then hoisted up through trapdoors onto the floor of the arena. No less interesting are the water systems, especially the channel that was used to collect the great quantity of rainwater tapped from the cavea and  transport it to the sea.
