What a great place for a picnic lunch, which we bought at the nearby Farmers Market. This amphitheater was constructed in c.70AD and used for dramatic performances. The quiet ambience of the structure during our visit allowed us to imagine and sense the loud applause...More

It is nice to look at, but not really something special. But I am sure that a nice concert or theater performance make a special venue out of this place.

I would have stayed and enjoyed this historic site more if the half-wit staff didn't prize themselves on shouting at my children every 5 minutes. We left after the aggressive behaviour got beyond ridiculous

We have visited the Roman theatre several times, both during the day and at night. For us, the best time to visit the theatre is at night for spectacles such as 'Jules César' (2015) and 'Augustodunum' (2017). Then, you really feel the connection with its...More

This Roman Theater ruins is just near the lake and is much bigger than I was expecting. You are able to walk completely through and around. No cost, lots of areas to park.

This is an interesting site for a visit of an hour or two and you can see one of the largest amphitheater’s of its time. Some parts of it are well preserved. Adjacent to the site is a very pretty lake with nice walking paths.
