The arch, made to honour Augustus Caesar 2000 years ago, can be found at the end of a long road out from the city centre. The main road skirts round the side of the arch now, but this is the sight you would have seen when entering the City of Orange - a very powerful symbol of the might of... More

This is a quick drive past and photo opportunity unless you are deep into Roman history. The arch is now in the middle of a quiet roundabout and you can park in the shade on the roundabout itself and make a quick dash across the road to read the informative plaque and take your photos. Part of the same World... More

Triumphal Arch of Orange is of about 2,000 years old. It was established in honor of Augustus Caesar. The Arch is within 800 meters of the ancient theater.

I actually walked there by chance, when trying to find closer way to the mall. The arc is nice, quite minutely decorated, but is quite small and for a laic is not special when compared to other arcs. It is also hemmed in asphalt roundabout, which decrease its factual beauty.

Nowhere near as impressive as the theatre, the Arc de Triumph is worth a detour and only takes a few minutes to walk around. It has been partially restored so some sections are worn and others give an idea of how it would have looked a few centuries ago when the carvings were well defined.

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!
