Historically a vast Roman theatre, excavated at the wrong time (20s and 30s) and very poorly restored, now a concert venue - so what is there is hidden by stages and lighting rigs, etc. General air of disuse

Built between 40-50 AD, it is considered one of the most important theatres of the Roman period. Abandoned at the end of Roman times, it was rediscovered at the beginning of the 20th century and restored in 1938. Originally able to hold 11,000 spectators the...More

Such an impressive Roman Theater! We saw it from the Pipet point of view right above it. I would love to visit again during the Jazz festival.

The amphitheatre is huge and it's been restored, so that 13,000 seat capacity is fully utilized in the 21st century. Acoustics are great and there's a full schedule of summer concerts, plays and other entertainments that draw people from all over the world. Vienne must...More

This Roman ampitheatre is located on a stunning site. It is tucked in at the bottom of a very steep rock face, using the natural contours to some extent to give the theatre elevation. Much of the site has been extensively recreated as the stonework...More

We didn't actually visit the amphitheater but could clearly see it in all its glory from Chapelle Notre Dame de la Salette which is high on a hill overlooking Vienne. Definitely worth checking out.

It is pretty amazing that this theatre was built in the 2nd century and is in such good condition. You are allowed to walk all through the seats, the hallways, and on the stage. It is amazing to look around and think back to the...More

Not the best preserved theater I've seen, but it should be visited if you are in Vienne. Too bad it was ignored for centuries and used as a dumping site. Otherwise it might be in better condition. The height of the back wall is impressive.

Excellent question. I recommend that you contact the venue directly and see if the reserve by row or if it is first come, first served. I would call them, 04 74 78 87 87 and ask.
