All reviews roman theatre worth a visit seating area buy a combined ticket beautiful roman combo ticket walk around roman ruin thousand years middle ages english subtitles stage fence orange ruins site arena
this is just a short walk away from the arena and well worth a visit as you are so close you can imagine the theatre and music when sitting anywhere in the theatre and the acoustics must be excellent, we will return to this area...More
Other reviews tend to undervalue the experience provided by this Roman theatre. We were very fortunate to have the theatre exclusively to ourselves and it is well worth doing, especially as a part of the economical group ticket that Arles provides for up to 6...More
Two couples touring Provence came to see the amphitheater and bought the combo tickets, which gave entry to this site. We saw remnants of columns and bases stacked around, sat in seating which remains, one danced on the current stage, imagined how it must have...More
Not one of the better Roman sites but worth a look if you are in the town. When we were there it was largely a play ground for a lot of kids but it's good that access to the site is not too restricted.
If you have bought a ticket to the Arena it is worth poking your head into the remains of the Theatre Antique. It won’t take you long as there isn’t much to it but it is a lovely calm space in the off season. If...More
The ancient theatre in Arles operates on the same schedule as the Arena. But it is no luck unlike the latter one. The amphitheater was saved by the transformation into a fortress. But the theater was plundered by locals on stones. All that's left are...More
Best way from Theatre Antique in Vienne to Lyon at night? (9 Replies)
Hi I am looking at booking a trip to Lyon, Sat-Tues, with the intention to go to a gig at the the Theatre Antique in Vienne on the Monday night. The latest train back to Lyon seems to be 9.58pm, which is too early, so would a taxi be the only alternative? Any idea how much this would cost? Thanks Jodi

I'd say that taxi is pretty much the only option unless you could negotiate a ride back to Lyon with one of your fellow spectators. I remember I did it when I went to Vienne for a Deep Purple gig. But I guess it won't be that easy if you don't speak French. Taxi from Vienne to central Lyon should cost approximately 80-95 euros during the night hours, it's about 35k ride.
Provence excursion beginning July 12 (0 Replies)
A 5 day excursion to the Provence area is planned beginning July 12. We are basing in Lourmarin and have accommodations, and rental car is planned. There's 2 of us, myself 65, slow walker, and 29 daughter, fit enough for anything. Every picture we see is better that the preceding one. She would like to go to a lavender distiller or production facility, preferably one without 6 big tourist busses, lol, it is a tourist destination, I know. Obviously, markets, some ruins, architecture, cafes,...More

Food Allowed in the Theatre Antique in Orange? (3 Replies)
We have tickets to see a classical concert during the Chorégies d'Orange series at 6:00 pm this July. I am wondering if we can bring a picnic into the venue or refreshments?

Wherever the concert is being held, this is a very serious music festival and rustling paper and other associated noises would be very antisocial. A bottle of water and a sweet to suck if you are prone to coughing is really the only acceptable refreshment in the Theatre Antique. Can't speak for the Cour St Louis specifically but it would be polite not to take your picnic with you.
