Create an itinerary including Théâtre gallo-romain
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.

  • While the configuration of the seating is clear enough the large back wall of a typical Roman theater has disappeared. I liked the theater better than the nearby odeon. The nearby museum was closed...

  • I am always impressed by the architectural design with remarkable acoustic qualities of such Roman theatres. The setting, with the enhancement of sound and lights by modern technology, offers excellent experience and enjoyment. The downside is it is open air, so events could be affected by weather.
  • An old roman theatre but still in a perfect shape. Visiting in the evening by metro, the weather was great. It is free of entry fees. You can stay as long as you want. But please keep you eyes out for the stairs as it is soo steep. Beware of falling down. Overall, It is a good place to chill out with your friends.
