After visiting the theatre take a stroll through Orange to this magnificent Roman arch. The relief stone carvings are impressive.

located between two Connection streets running outwards the town, the Arclooks abandoned, seems that nobody is interested to Keep it well, full of garabage on the floor around it

This is a magnificent Napoleonic Arch which welcomes one into the old Roman City. Well worth a photo or two!

Viewed in pre- traffic Orange as the first rays hit the top, is awesome to behold. It incredibly stands complete on a main thoroughfare on the northern exit of the town.

This is placed in the quiet residence area and surrounded by green. The place is little far from central area and there was no shop or sightseeing spot nearby. The place is about 1km the Ancient Theater. Perhaps you can come from a train station on foot. But I thought it was not easy and joined excursion to come easily.

I've seen a few Roman triumphal arches over the years - but this is a most interesting one - with carvings and decorations that are still in good condition, and with a range of unusual local themes. There is a car park right next to the arch - which makes a visit by car very easy.

A bit further up the road from the Theatre but worth the stroll. Amazing that it's still there, but still impressive. Stuck out on its own really but in its day it would have been huge in amongst a the small roman villas.
