This is tucked away from the main town, and well worth a visit with free parking next to it. It's an impressive piece of Roman architecture in surprisingly good condition. The fact that it's free is a bonus, but it would be nice to he better information alongside it. Take a good guidebook when you go.

A quick stop on our way out of town. An impressive structure worth a 5 minute visit. Built about 27 BC it is obviously quite worn, but still remarkable.

This Roman ruin will take your breath away if you love architecture and art. This was amazing to see and surprising that so much of the detail has survived over the years. Really tells a story of the times so take your time walking around it and enjoy it!

This is a fantastic triumphal arch. The carvings are still quite visible in some places and very evocative. Easily accessible and you can walk around it freely.

We were touring Provence to see Roman remainders, so the Orange Arch was a must stop. Very impressive after 2000 years. I liked that it is in a traffic circle, and you can walk right up to it, and through it. There is a board with explanation, but only in French. Surprised by the number of people who stopped to...

It's staggering that this has survived through the ages and amazing to see. Make sure you walk all around it and through all three arches as there's something different at every angle. While it's on a roundabout there's not too much traffic or fumes and we walked there from the theatre in about 10 minutes so easy to get to... More

The Arch has been cleaned since we last visited Orange. The carvings are much easier to see. It is a beautiful arch that is well preserved. At night they light it up with spotlights. Seeing it during the day is better for seeing the carvings. It is well worth the time for a visit!

Imagine being able to walk thru and stand next to a 2000 year old Roman arch. In amazingly well preserved condition. Very clean environment, no graffiti, no trash. And there is free parking next to the site. A must see.
