  • Arles is worth the visit, ancient theatre, after all is part of the story, very interesting. Thanks and nominate.

  • Not as grand or well preserved as the theater in Orange, but still a wonderful example of Roman civilization. I wonder if any our theaters will be around 2000 years from now? 
  • Really a roman ruin but, while not as intact as the theatre in Orange (a definite must-see) it gives a great sense of the advance of Roman civilization.

  • Wonderful old Roman theatre.
  • Lovely Roman theatre.
  • The theater has some modern-era renovations. There is a video describing the building in it's heyday. The ruins are in ok shape (not as good as Orange), but you get the idea of what once was. .The stage is used for productions. The Arles card provides for discounted entrance. A good stop to get the visuals down is at the antiquities museum where there is a reconstruction.
  • The ruins are beautiful but have to also pay the entry for a 1 year old baby I think it's just abused

  • Less well preserved than that Orange has this theater deserves to leave the dreamy visitor to share its quietude. A must see.
