There is not much left of the theatre, apart from a few rows of seats. It overlooks what seems to have been a roman arena, but it's shape is wrong and is now a rugby field. The walk to it from town is pleasant enough,...More

To Friends here for the evenings entertainment. Brilliant can't believe the energy and commitment these enthusiastic amateur thespians have. A good night and money well spent.

Even though the Romans built this over a 1000 years ago it still remains in use today as a sometime venue for outdoor events. It is a good example of a Roman theater.

Once the largest ampitheatre in the whole of Gaul, this is a lovely place to stop by and see the view of the lake. It has been left to nature in some ways with grass growing etc, but still is well-maintained, and concerts are held...More

This is a Roman amphitheatre that has been left to its own devices. It is interesting to imagine what it would have been like in roman times Worth going if you are already in Autin

There is so much history here... ... and it's a perfect place for a picnic. Autun stills breathes so much of it's Roman heritage and you can sit in a remarkable amphitheater.

Not easy to find but worth the effort. It is a large amphitheatre and in a relatively good state of presevation, clearly used for outdoor events. No admission fee and accessible.

We walked to this amphitheater, it's an amphitheater, and if you go expecting much else I think you will be disappointed. However we enjoyed our walk round, the kids asked questions - I don't think they believed the answer... But we had a pleasant hour...More

Such a historical amphitheater, a nice place to see for a 30 minute stop in Autun. Open scenery with a view of the lake.

The old Roman ruins are a major attraction in Autun & the amphitheatre is the best. Surprisingly, very accessible -- & check out the caverns at either end for participants/animals to enter.
