Ten thousand Roman spectators once occupied the seats of Théâtre gallo-romain; now, the theater is a historian's playground. Walk on the stage and become Nero performing in front of his reluctant audience, or Cicero inspiring his people. Alternatively, sit in the stone aisles and imagine a spectacle of Roman gods from a citizen's view. In either case, you'll be awed by the lost glory of Rome.

Théâtre gallo-romain Reviews
Not much to be done but beautiful place. Hear rock concerts are held here from time to time and that must be an experience. Definitely worth a visit more »
This is on the way down (or up) from Notre Dame Fouviere, but is even worth a separate trip on its own. It is very large and quite impressive. It is amazing how much is still intact. The area is open.... more »
Really pretty, they still use it for concerts and teather. You can walk throw, take photos, of course please don't leave trash behind and take care as if was your own home. It's near a museum, that also is really interesting, I didn't go since I was with the school and we had to follow the teachers also the time was really late and was closed, but the locals recommended. :)
It's a beautiful place to be at! You have a good view of the city from the amphitheatre while still being in the architecture that is from Roman age. There's a beautiful museum nearby, having various artifacts.
