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 great place to visit and learn something new about roman theatre... when paid ticket, your ticket includes voice over guiding tour, it is a great way to do tours and learn about the place. It will be a greatest advantage to have voice over guiding tour, where you press numbers into your little radio then it will... More

Absolutely mind-blowing! Even though this 2000 year old edifice has been heavily restored, it is still amazing what the Romans did, without modern machinery.

This amazingly intact Roman theatre was well worth a visit and the museum opposite held some of the mosaics and fresco's found.

It's well done. They have things for the kids to look up and there are audio guides included. One of three in the world that is intact

Amazing that a theatre built in BC is still used for performances even today. Interesting history as heard in the audio guide. Would be amazing to see a live performance. A must see when in Provence.

Have seen many roman ruins including theatres so were unsure whether to go Glad we did One of the largest & most intact Roman theatres in Europe & the fact that it is being actively used adds to its "presence"

Without doubt the Antique Theatre is well worth a visit but not so sure about the opera. Parking was nigh on impossible (a barman told us people started arriving around 4pm (opera started at 9:45) to find a space). Also, probably because of the numbers, all the restaurants only had a set menu on offer. For us, opera on a... More

There was no microphones and there was 9000 people who could here everything . My wife and I were totally impressed and could... More

very good audio tour of the Theatre d'antique. It is quite pricey for entry but under 5s were free. Well worth a visit although little ones might find all the steps a bit too difficult
