Bit of a walk from the centre

Considering that it was built more than 2000 years ago, it wasn't in too bad a condition. Some of the details have been lost, inevitably, but we are glad we made the effort to go and look at it.

The triumphal arch is very nice and well preserved, but there's nothing going on around it. The arch is a 500m walk from the city center, which is not far, but makes the surroundings uninteresting.

If you're in Orange it's worth a short drive north from the theatre to see the Arc. Located in the middle of a large, grassy traffic circle, park on the east side (lots of parking) and walk across to take a closer look. No hordes here.

The arch is an easy walk from the centre of Orange, across a small bridge. You can view it from all sides and see the various carvings, some of which have survived better than others. You will appreciate it more if you have read the history of its construction and how it was designed to remind the Gauls of the... More

For Anglais speakers do your research before your visit, otherwise you will be in the dark. Very historic, impressive, but no information on site and you are in the middle of traffic.(time to move the main road I'm afraid)

It is a pleasant walk to view this arch which I must admit has seen the ravages of time much more than a lot more I have seen. You can get some good photographs but be careful of the traffic. Worth seeing but I have seen better.

brought here on the good value road train caught outside the amphitheatre. The road trip takes you around all the historical sites in the great town.. but be warned the commentary is only available in french

Arch is a must see when visiting Orange. Get out of car to walk around from different angles to appreciate its scale and detail features. Triumphal it is accurate. MG, Cork. Ireland.

Remarkably well preserved arch, a bit out of town, but easily walkable in 5 minutes, definitely well worth a visit.

Whilst not in the city centre, and requiring a little walk to reach, it was well worth the effort. This beautifully conserved structure is highlighted with intricate detail and is magnificent to stand and gaze upon.
