  • It's a good thing that this remains visible so you get some idea of the original, although it isn't as well preserved or imposing as the nearby amphitheatre.

  • It is not much to see, but free if you already have paid entrance to the arena. It is not that much left of the theater. Compared to Orange and the arena is very little to see.

  • 9€ is a bit much to visit this Roman theatre, especially since I’ve visited others for free. Entrance to the fondation Van Gogh was 10€, which was worth it because the museum curated a wonderful exhibition.
  • Sooo beautiful the evenings during the Rencontres!
