Amphithéâtre Gallo-Romain, Lyon

(4.3/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
Ten thousand Roman spectators once occupied the seats of Amphithéâtre 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. To visit Amphithéâtre Gallo-Romain on your holiday in Lyon, and find out what else Lyon has to offer, use our Lyon trip itinerary planner.

  • This place blew me away, it was much larger than I thought it would be. The place was well taking care of and was enjoyable. If you are going to the Basilique (the one close-by) then don't miss out on...  more »

  • Nice scenery blended with architecture that takes you back im time.
  • Roman anfitheter worth seeing and exploring the acoustic
  • Great museum to visit if you happens to be in Lyon! I was here and was lucky enough to be with a friend who passionate and studied Archaeology!
  • Some people might think that there is too many ancient stones in the Museum but the movie and all the objects inside the Museum can help you understand Lyon's history. I guess this is a must-see if you stay two weeks and have time for it. And if you are of course interested in History. Visited September 2015
  • Parfait pour se detendre !
