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

We have seen several historic Roman amphi-theatres across Europe and this one will probably feature in top 3 in our list. This 2,000 years old theatre is in good shape and they even have concerts here. With a capacity to sit 10,000 people, this is...More

This site can be viewed by foot, on the tourist trolley, or the tourist bus - all go by the site. It' easily accessible, well preserved, and interesting to see.

A really nice spot to visit. It is towards the top of the hill west of Vieux Lyon, so the funicular is the preferred way to the top.
