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 and social life in the Provencal city during Roman times. In the new projection room, the film, with computer-generated images and reconstructions of shows, retraces the history of the Roman Theatre of Orange.

Orange is an attractive town and well worth a visit. The Roman Theatre is very interesting and within the ticket price you also get entry into the museum opposite which is also extremely interesting.

Giant well kept theatre. But IMO, you get the nicest view from the park (free) behind the theatre, you'll get a nice aerial view from there.

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 :) ).
