Small Roman Theatre worth seeing with the main amphitheatre

You can enter here free if you purchase a ticket to go into the Amphitheatre. This is a small theatre and has on some days a play / entertainment

The theatre is beautiful, but the ticket is overpriced due to the unfriendly and helpless service offered by the welcome team. An audio guide or some kind of more accurate historical information would make the visit more interesting.

Nice place to visit, although the example at Orange is more complete. It is situated righted next door to the Arena.

An excellent attraction easy to walk round even in39 degree heat! It benefits greatly from clear and thoughtful explanations including a splendid short film.

Just next to the Roman Arena, The Arles Roman Theatre was build up around 27 BC–14 AD. This is one more Roman monument to add to the town of Arles along with the Arena. However the preservation of the theater is not as great as the one of the arenas due to the deterioration during the Middle Age… Only two... More

Still holding concert here, very well preserved considering the age. There is an entrance fee, but you can see most of it from outside - there's not much more than meets the eye.

Step back in time. Walk through the theatre and sit on the steps of the ancient Romans. Great history lessons to be learned.
