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...more
Amazing venue! Original Roman back drop is spetacular. Take or rent a seat w/ a back & cushion. Barbour of Seville was an updated amusing version (fab singing & orchastra) but we had been hiking in full sun and left after 2 hours, at the...More
The theatre is almost 2000 years old. The acoustics are wonderful but it takes a little bit of effort to get used to.
High up you find a status of Augustus, the Roman emperor WGO has been watching you all the time.
Take the tour!
While it’s cool to just be inside and look at the theater, the audio tour and audio visual elements make an effort to provide highlights in the theater’s long history. I particularly appreciated the segment on acoustics. While the place is mostly exposed to the...More
This theater is quite unique, with the scene wall still standing (there are 2 others). Its history is amazing. They used to build a village inside its walls! Take the guided tour, you hear many information and see pictures on how it used to look.

The entry fee includes the small museum across the street.
Well worth a look, impressive and easily completed in 1,5hours.

Agree with all the others. Lovely place, well worth the visit and a pleasant town to hang out in for a couple of days. The hill behind the theatre is an a lovely park and if the weather is good well worth the climb for the view down onto the theatre and out into the surrounding country side.
I traveled by train from avignon and it is just a short ride no need to book in advance. I think there are direct trains from paris but probably TGV so might be wise to book if you go direct from there. SNCF website will give you all the info you need on that
