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

Hubby and I visited the Theatre Antique whilst staying in Orange overnight travelling through France to Spain on holiday. We were very lucky to have a superb clear blue sky day when visiting but it was very windy. So much information and so much to...More
What an amazing site to see. Even though we did not go inside to walk around, you could see from street. It's awesome they're taking steps to preserve such an awesome structure. I'm very glad we walked around Orange and stumbled across this. Across the...More
We almost skipped this visit during our 7 days in Nimes because the city of Orange does not offer the charm of Uzes, Avignon or Aigues-Mortes. It turned out to be one of the best Roman sites we saw, mainly because the "virtual tour" and...More
This is such an amazing piece of history in such good shape considering it was built during the reign of Emperor Augustus in the 1st century AD. There is one huge wall behind what would have been the stage with columns and niches for statues...More
I am not the biggest history buff; but this place is marvelous! It was built into the hillside over 2000 years ago by the Romans and is an architectural masterpiece. It obviously has damage due to weather over the years, but it is still awe...More

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
