Being a Radiohead fan, visiting Theatre Antique has been on my list for nearly 20 years since their first concerts of the Kid A tour. So from that perspective it's a 5 star experience for the memories of early days of streaming and what must...More

We didnt enter, since we were visiting the city with our 4 legged family member, our dog, and unfortunately since dogs are not allowed we only saw it from outside. Still, since it has almost transparent fences all around it, you can still admire it...More

The ruins of this first-century A.D. Roman Theatre sprawl next to the Roman amphitheater but pale in comparison. The arena has been beautifully restored while the theatre displays mostly seating. I picked my way through much rubble while exploring the site on an April afternoon....More

This site is amazing to see especially as it is so close to the larger amphitheater. To get two so close together and only a few minutes walk in between is incredible. Highly recommend.

I paused to admire this very old place, full of history. It was worth my time to see it. It was better than I anticipated.

Other reviews tend to undervalue the experience provided by this Roman theatre. We were very fortunate to have the theatre exclusively to ourselves and it is well worth doing, especially as a part of the economical group ticket that Arles provides for up to 6...More

You might as well walk past this ruin, even though you can't get inside. Our tour guide brought this place to life, but without her it wouldn't have been very exciting.

Two couples touring Provence came to see the amphitheater and bought the combo tickets, which gave entry to this site. We saw remnants of columns and bases stacked around, sat in seating which remains, one danced on the current stage, imagined how it must have...More

Not one of the better Roman sites but worth a look if you are in the town. When we were there it was largely a play ground for a lot of kids but it's good that access to the site is not too restricted.
