The amazing architecture that dated back centuries ago and you can only imagine when looking at the site, the crowds of people that would visit to watch a show or some form of entertainment. To think they thought of the creative design and structure way...More

Very impressive, but it would be better if we could read signs explaining the meaning of the buildings and constructions. But the visit in this place is obviously mandatory.

We were unable to wander everywhere here because some areas were closed while a concert was being set up. However if you are interested in Roman history there are some very well preserved aspects and a small museum

This may be a hot walk up layers of stairs for you but persevere because this Theatre (for 20,000 Gauls and a few Romans) and the smaller Odeon next door are magnificently preserved. And from the top there are wonderful views over Lyon.

The ruins of the Roman theatre are amazing. The museum next to them is great. It is well planned with good flow from one exhibit to another. The labels are are all in French but you're there to see the exhibits which speak for themselves.

Enjoyed seeing ...doesn’t take long....half an hour, but then we went on to museum which had a great special exhibit on water that was very interesting....enjoyed regular exhibits too such as seeing the mosaic floors, and archaeological findings from Lyon and area.
