This place is cool if you like history of Roman ruins. We were on a guided tour and this was one of our stops. We were not able to get inside the theatre as other people did, but it is worth a visit.

Maybe because of the more human scale, we enjoyed spending time here more than any of the Roman ruins. We sat on the stone seats and just took it all in. If you wander the grounds, you view all the pieces and parts from the...More

This is over 2000 years old and worth visiting with the CIty Pass. You can see it without paying from outside the fence, but the best views are inside. There is also a video outside about it that is interesting.

The Roman Theatre is probably visited by about 10% of the amphitheatre’s visitors, but internally it is far superior. Still used and young people were performing one evening when we were there. This is one of the five sites to visit on the Arles special...More

Like many Greek-style theatres surrounding the Mediterranean, this one was “mined” for its marble and other building materials following the barbarian invasions and through the Middle Ages. However, it’s foundations were unearthed in the 19th century, and in the spirit of that age it was...More

This Roman Theatre, completed in 12 BC, was the site for free public entertainment. During the Middle Ages, houses and churches were built inside the theatre. Over time, stone from the theatre was plundered for neighbouring building sites resulting in a ravaged historical site. The...More

This is well worth a visit. It’s best to start with the interesting video, which explains which sections are original and which have been restored (in French but with English subtitles) and also gives a good impression of what the monument would have originally looked...More

Easy to reach and worth a visit if you are in the area. The interpretation isn't very copious and it's better to go there before the Arena. It is possible to see a lot from outside. It was included in our pass so we went...More
