Orange, Ancient Monuments - Visit time : half-day.

The city of Arausio (its ancient Roman name) offers its Roman Theater and Triumphal Arch as a testament to its 2,000 years of history.

Both are in exceptional condition, as if the tragedies that were played in the theater happened just yesterday, and as if the visitors who pass under the Triumphal Arch on the Via Agrippa were the Emperor Augustus himself. The 20th century would be marked by the introduction of one of the largest festivals of lyrical art, the Choregies of Orange, which allowed the city to shine once again on the worldwide stage. The festival’s operas and symphonic concerts take place at the heart of the Roman Theater, offering a combination of history and culture, and timeless, magical moments.
