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.

Just as impressive as the theater of nimes with operas and concerts you should really try to buy tickets for one of them. I've seen pictures of the operas here in the Kyriad hotel

We opted for the audio guide, which is the mininum fare. 3D movies or guided tour both cost extra. The entry fee includes the small museum across the street. Well worth a look, impressive and easily completed in 1,5hours.

My teenaged kids were tired of visiting ruins by the time we got to Orange, but the beauty of the building, and the engaging audio tour kept them going. My son went ahead of the rest of us, clicking through the tour. Meanwhile, my daughter...More

It is an amazing piece of architecture and it has been saved so good. The main problem is that it's really expensive to go in, but it's worth it.

Amazing Roman Theatre so well worth a visit. Take the headset an walk around slowly and try to take in the enormity of the place. Museum across the road is well with a visit. A true wonder.

We booked tickets on-line the day before the performance of Mefistofele, and were instructed to pick them up from the ticket office at the day. We duly arrived at 4 p.m. to be told that the system had crashed and to come back at 7....More

Rent a car, it'll be cheaper and loads more convenient. Parking isn't difficult and mostly free (if you don't mind a short walk :) ).
