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.

  • Like the Notre Dame, it's a steep walk to get to the theatre. However, it is a worth a visit if you will be visiting the nearby La Basilique Notre Dame. There are two parts - a less restored part...

  • 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.
  • Beautiful Roman amphitheatre proving incredible views over Lyon and the surrounding area. Free to visit though a fee is required to go to the museum. Definitely worth taking the funicular railway to get there though as it'd be a steep walk!
