  • A stroll by is all that is needed here. It is a marvel, but is overshadowed by the amphitheater. Still in use today for concerts. Some unsavory people inhabit the park nearby.  more »
  • the theater is located next to the amphitheatre we see very well since the grid which surrounds it, I don't really see the interest to use a pass to see it...;

  • It is a theatre that was built in 0/1. It could accommodate more than 10000 people who at that time. It is a surprise to that is such old remains in good condition so you can still used for events, Opera and concerts.

  • 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.
