Amphithéâtre Gallo-Romain, Lyon
(4.3/5 based on 1,700+ 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.

  • To visit Lyon can not miss this place, testimony of the passage of the Romans by this city. It is accessible by subway, which corresponds with the funicular railway that leads to the entrance of this attraction. It is free, and has a Museum of items found among the ruins.

  • Place amazing and full of history. Overlooking Lyon. There are a lot of markets to Fourvière, attention for people in difficulty. This place is worth the visit!

  • 一個古代留下的建築 可以看到古羅馬遺蹟 覺得很特別但他不大 當時現在在辦音樂活動 有很多景都被擋住了 建議大家可以順便走上去富爾韋聖母院

  • 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 !
