Arènes de Lutèce, Paris – 6:45PM
The Arènes de Lutèce, constructed by Romans in the 1st century AD, is the longest amphitheater of its kind in Paris with a stage of 41 meters which allowed scenes to alternate between theatrical productions and gladiator combats. A series of nine niches aided in improving the acoustics. Five cubbyholes were situated beneath the lower bleachers, of which three appear to have been wild animal cages that opened directly into the arena. Historians believe that the bleachers, which surrounded more than half of the arena’s circumference, could accommodate as many as 17,000 spectators.
Slaves, the poor, and women were relegated to the higher tiers, while the lower seating areas were reserved for Roman male citizens.(Wiki knowledge of the place!)
