After we visited the famous theater in Orange, had a bite to eat and toured the Musee d'Orange, we headed out of town stopping just long enough to photograph the Roman triumphal arch built by Augustus' best friend and general extraordinaire, Marcus Agrippa. It stands on the site of the former Via Agrippa and was originally intended to honor the... More

Cool old arch (from time of Jesus) but there is no information about it at the sight. It is being renovated so perhaps they will add something.

at first glance, looks like a poor copy of the arch in Paris; takes a while to sink in that this one was built in 30 BC. As such; it's actually quite impressive that it's still standing and looks as good as it does. Totally nondescript area, probably gets about twelve tourists a year; but deserved better. If you're in... More

If you have been to the Roman theatre you must have a look at this structure. 2,000 years of history. You can sense the soldiers marching through the arch. well worth a photo or too

You wouldn't come to Orange just to see the arch, but if you're already there, you really shouldn't miss it. It's easy to find, and you can examine it in detail in just a few minutes. In fact, you may be happy with just a drive by, although it's hard not to get out and snap a few pictures for... More

We came upon the arch quite by accident while looking for a gas station! We had been so focused on seeing the Roman Theatre that we had quite overlooked the existance of the Arch in Orange. It was fun to be surprised by it as we came upon it in its roundabout at the edge of the city center. Worth... More

It is an easy ten minute walk to this 1st Century monument, the Arch itself is a significant historical structure and worthy of a visit. However the area around it could be presented in a better way, some gardens planted with flowers, a couple of seats, some information about the Arch and its carvings in a language other than French,...

An ancient monument straddling a very busy main road out of Orange which we only saw because we used a car park next to it

The arch was good to see and worth a quick trip. Although not huge in size it is still historically significant. Great bakery nearby also.

The arch stands proudly reflecting the sunshine and really does take you by surprise.Make time to pull over into the adjacent parking to admire the structure and the carvings.
