Bibendum
Louis XIV called the stage wall of the Ancient Theatre "the most handsome in the kingdom". It is made of granite and African breccia, and its outer facing is striking in its simplicity - it is broken only by the corbels supporting the poles from which material was hung to protect the audience from the sun. The statue of Augustus, resuming its place in the central niche, and a few granite rubble stones give an idea of the original decoration. The amphitheatre with its 34 stands had a 7 000 spectator capacity.

    Pros

    Meme s'il n'est que le pale reflet de ce qu'il a du etre, le théatre antique vous transporte instantanément dans un autre age. Le découvrir à l'occasion de spectacles est une bonne occasion. L'accoustique est exceptionelle. Mais le mieux est peut etre de le visiter lors d'une des "fetes romaines" ou la magie du lieu opérant, on trouve normal de voir des gladiateurs sur le sable de l'arène, ou de croiser César et ses soldats au détour d'un couloir !

    Cons

    Le mistral est une vraie plaie qui peut gacher la visite. Impossible hélas de l'éviter, çà fait partie du lot...
