Create an itinerary including Théâtre gallo-romain
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.

  • These ruins are the oldest in France. They were started in 15 BC to build a theater and later 10,000 seats were made for the audience.

  • Worth a visit for sure. Take the funicular and take the time to also visit their garden area. Steps down to base level had no handrail, but site is worth walking through.

  • The ruins are excavated, cleaned, and exposed which is amazing. There's little info provided on what exactly you are looking for besides those rare few tablets. The archaeologists have a long way to go.
