Yet another of the gems of Lyon In Roman times this place could hold upto 20,000 you would not imagine it but the Romans did have a very ingenious streak. A piece of ancient history in this great city. However it is always worth bearing...More

Although the way up, it is worth to go! A place like this very constructive and well conserved ! We were there for the "fete des lumieres" and the transformations from day to night was great!!

A short walk from the bus stop on the city tour these remains are impressive in their size . It wasn’t so busy the day we visited as the weather was very cold . Little by way of tourist facilities nearby !

I loved it, it is better to visit it in a sunny day, so you can stand a while there. when you visit The Fourvier Cathedral, You can visit the ruins too.

The acoustic of this amphitheatre is amazing. You wonder how someone, 2000 years ago, could think of building such a wonderful structure.

Great spot to wander around and enjoy the ruins. Steep walk up worth it. Again the view back over Lyon is lovely from up here. Also a nice spot to just sit and enjoy the setting.

Surprising ruins on the Lyon landscape on Fourviere hill. These include an impressive anfitheatre. These historical remains go back to the Roman era.

So interesting to see the number of Roman ruins throughout France and interesting to find the amphitheater ruins in Lyon. We have seen a lot of medieval structures in France but to see Roman ruins is a real plus.

The ruins are interesting but typical of Roman theatres. Th setting is great, though, with Lyon stretching out below. The associated museum is quite good, providing a good understanding of the historical development and importance of Lyon. rthiwhiel
