This ancient structure was just minutes walk from my hotel. It was easy to access, with excellent traffic control measures around it. It was incredible to see the detail of the carvings and realise how old it was.

If the weather is not nice and it is within 15mins from where you are, it is worth a visit, but since I drove more than 1hr out of the way to visit it and the weather was miserable, I was quite disappointed. In dull and miserable weather, it looked very pale and all the pictures I took lacked the... More

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

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

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.
