Théâtre gallo-romain, Lyon

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.

  • Very beautiful place. There is absolute calm even if it's a place very popular with tourists. The vastness of the remains are amazing

  • It is more uninteresting to discover the halls outside the summer festival... Up and down markets, by testing the acoustics...

  • This is one of the best persevered Amphitheater that we have seen considering that you can just walk all over it . It has very steep steps in places so be careful . It is a short walk from the Basilic...  more »

  • Built on the hillside, there are a lot of remains to walk around. Museum next to it. Great view of Lyon
  • Very very nice place. Liked a lot from the beginning. Great for a walk, great for a picnic, great for a nap.... Went there with gf and friends and with the lovely views of the city and the churches, the landscape is just so cool.... Very nice experience
  • Closed ahead of schedule for an evening event, without preinfo and real reason. Not a way to treat tourists. Do again, do better Lyon!
  • We liked it so much. I think it was a kind of amphitheatre. Although it's only the ruins left but still spectacular. At first I doubt this place will be good because I read some bad reviews in the Google maps. But it turns out this place is amazing, has great view, photogenic, and the most important is our 2 yo daughter loved exploring this place.
  • Quite impressive ... I hear they host concerts there, I would love to experience that.

Where to stay in Lyon

Lyon’s nine districts surround the two major rivers running through the city: the Rhône and the Saône. The most scenic districts are Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) and La Croix Rousse, where the city’s historic sites are located. Lodging in these areas is walking distance to these sites.
