Lyon's Roman theatre is the oldest in France, built by order of Augustus from 17 to 15 BC. It is a typical stone ruin shaped like an open amphitheatre. It was built next to the hill of Fourvière, which is located in the center of the Roman city and holds a capacity of housing 4500. It will remind you of a scene out of the movies featuring gladiators.
