Amazing that this theater, which seats many thousands, is still in use today. Best view of it is from Pipet, above it. Annual jazz festival is held here. Also cool buildings nearby w paintings of famous folks(moliere, Myles Davis, Didi Brigewater)

A well preserved Roman theater that is in use today for jazz concerts. We took a tourist train to the top of the hill.

Purely amazing that this ancient roman theatre is still in such excellent shape. It was unfortunate that we had very bad weather when we were there.....cold, rain and with snow - couldn't stay too long to enjoy this amphitheatre. We took the train up the...More

Excellent question. I recommend that you contact the venue directly and see if the reserve by row or if it is first come, first served. I would call them, 04 74 78 87 87 and ask.
