Just back from the Vienne Jazz Festival and saw Nile Rodgers and Chic at the Theatre Romain two nights ago. At first glance the venue is a bit intimidating (our ages range from 21 to 75) and I wish we had seen the advice to arrive earlier. But the night was brilliant. This venue is superb, as is the rest... More

Get there 2 hrs before the concert - that's when the gates open. Park at St.Marcel if you can (300 places, but full from 2.5 hrs before concert - flat fee for evening : € 3.50 !

We took a mini-tram to the top of a hill, which is the best way to get to it. A difficult walk and drive otherwise. Had a great view of the amphitheater and surrounding areas. Well worth the visit.

It was really romantic. A breath taking view. It's free to come here you just pay for the trains as usual. You can walk though. You can come by bike. So many ways to get there. There is a magnificent view of the whole of Lyon similar to what you get at the church! It's restricted to climb on the... More

While the remains of the amphitheater are impressive alone; I really liked how they were integrated into the modern town. And the view of the theater from above is simply splendid.

You can really get a feel for life in ancient Roman times at this amphitheatre. And like a lot of the Roman amphitheatres, it is still used today for concerts. Definitely worth a look.

This theater once held 13,000 people and was build around 40 AD. It is surrounded by a fence so you must pay a fee and check the opening hours to be admitted.

This is one of my favorite historic sites in France. Even if we had done nothing else in Vienne, seeing this wonderful Roman theatre would have been reason enough to visit the city. It was my tough luck that it was raining too hard for decent photography. Win a few, lose a few.

We passed by the Roman theatre as part of our stroll around Vienne. At first we thought we wouldn't go in, but the theatre is fenced and views are shielded by large banners, so we paid up and went in. It doesn't take long to go around and it's worth going up to the highest point for a view of... More

Nobody is going to say, "let's go see the Roman Theater",,,,,it is merely one of 4 or 5 things that make a stop in Vienne nice. We say it from the heights above....its an ok attraction which is still used for a jazz festival. If you stop in Vienne you will probably see it.
