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.

We did not have too much time to study this triple arch way in detail but it is awe inspiring to think this was build over 2000 years ago as a monument to wars fought in France and Germany by some Roman legions. There was a little local confusion if the arch is now standing where it was originally build.... More

After the Theatre it is a bit of a let down, but it it would really take something to compete with that.

How lucky are we to be able to visit places like this and see such history, Orange, I think is very underestimated and to be honest, that is not such a bad thing, it keeps the visitor levels down and keeps this relatively small town nice and not overcrowded which would ruin it, great place.

This is a great Arch and the carvings etc are excellent- but oh dear it is poorly presented in the middle of a roundabout with limited interpretation or signs-such a pity and not worthy of this great monument

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
