The arch was dedicated to the Roman soldiers veterans of the Gallic wars. It's relatively well-preserved. It's located within walking distance from the old town

The Triumphal Roman Arch in Orange is a stunner. Lots of relief carving which looks surprisingly modern. It was deserted so we had it all to ourselves. It is free. There is a free carpark immediately adjacent. There is supposed to be a free shuttle back to the Roman Theatre, but it wasn't very far so we opted to walk.... More

OK it is an arch but nothing that amazing. Have a look if you need to but I didn't think it is a must see. If you follow all the arches then maybe this is for you

This is not to be missed as it is one of the largest and best preserved Roman artefacts. It's just a short walk from the heart of town as was deserted on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Plus it's free True it is now surrounded by a roundabout, but truly remarkable structure and it's amazing that it has survived through the... More

I think if the Romans knew it would end up in the middle of a roundabout surrounded by several big building developments they would have probably built it somewhere else. I was first inclined to say not to waste your shoe leather but it's only a short walk from the centre of Orange and despite its external walls being very... More

A typical Roman Triumphal Arch; not a lot to see as it is stuck in the middle of a traffic island but if you can get through the traffic, have a good look at the carvings which are quite good.

We discovered this from the guide map provided by the Office de Tourism. It looked a bit "out of town" and debated whether to go or not. It turn out to be a ten minute stroll and well worth the effort. Set on a roundabout with road works; the setting is not impressive but the arch itself is.

Historic, not to be missed. Climb to the top if you have the stamina. Also fun to watch the traffic going around the circle. Then walk down the street, not USA friendly for the most part.

Delightful town, the old city is worth the visit. We did not have time to visit the Roman Theatre but it looked amazing.
