Lyon, France is home to two strikingly safeguarded Roman theaters, one going back to 15 BCE. Situated in the Fourvière zone of Lyon, both theaters are in a remarkable state of preservation and are well worth incorporating into a visit to this great city. The bigger and more seasoned of the two dates from around 15 BCE. This impressive structure is just south of the prominent Notre Dame basilica and has the usual steeply tiered seating, a decorated floor and the foundations of an extensive stage. It is still used for performances.
