    Older folks beware! The amphitheater, which is lovely itself, does NOT have railing on the steps. The steps are stone and were difficult to walk down with no support. It would be a great idea to provide wooden railings which would blend into the beautiful surroundings. As it is, its very unsafe for people a little unsteady on their feet.
