Roman Theatre, Lyon, France

Just down the hill from Basilica Notre-Dame de Fourvière is a Roman theatre. Roman theatres are semicircular structures. Amphitheatres are circular.

From wikipedia:

On the south side of Fourvière are the (partially intact) ruins of a Roman Theatre (15 BC), only rediscovered in the 20th century, and now home to a museum and a series of concerts and operas throughout the summer, and the ruins of vast Roman Baths.
The Bird's eye is here. My pictures begin here.
