Built under Emperor Augustus in the 1st century AD, the Roman Theatre of Orange experienced a real rebirth in 2003, transporting visitors back to Imperial Rome. The new tour and the free audioguide in seven languages tell visitors about the shows and social life in the Provencal city during Roman times. In the new projection room, the film, with computer-generated images and reconstructions of shows, retraces the history of the Roman Theatre of Orange.

This is a pretty ok place to go. We went there as part of our trip to Orange. It is reasonably well maintained and there is a good audio tour as well. We went on a very hot day, so please go prepared to face the heat. The whole experience was different and nice. If in Orange, then do visit... More

Part of our shared world heritage, if you're in the area it would be terrible not to visit the Amphitheatre. The site is very well managed and well worth the hour or so of your time it will take to visit.

A reconstructed Roman theater Previously contained about 8,000 seats. The stage and the front wall of the ancient theater remained complete. You can visit it and enjoy performances (for a fee) that take place in it especially in the summer

The Roman theatre of Orange is a MUST-SEE. Get the audioguide and you won't miss anything interesting about this majestic building. So you get somehow near to the past. To the great past of a vanished empire ....

Excellent place for opera or any concert. Very steep rise and steps and back seats are stone so bring a seat pad (or buy one from the many vendors around the site)
