The Roman Theatre in Orange is the only Roman theatre *in the world* with its stage wall intact. It's a must-see for anybody who loves Roman architecture, archaeology, and history. The guided tour is a bit long, but so very informative. Many cultures have left...More
A good stop over for a few hours to walk among the delicate ruins and to imagine the Romans and all who have followed to entertain citizens and esteemed guests, alike. A great history and a treat to walk within the amphitheater. Plus, your entrance...More
The largest surving Roman Theatre wall in Europe is definitely worth a visit. Even though there are renovations the majesty of the place still enthralled us. The audio guide in many languages is a great way to appreciate. My favourite was some multi media displays...More
Unfortunately (for us) they are doing some massive renovations currently, so there is a lot of scaffolding around the stage particularly. However it still well worth the visit to see this impressive construction and hear the history. The audio tour is excellent, with heaps of...More
If you do not get to the performance, there is really only way to evaluate the acoustics of the Ancient theater -to come first to the opening. You will have 5-7 minutes to yell at the completely empty stands. The ancient theatre of Orange is...More

Well kept theater about two thousand years old. It is being renovated. We did not go in because we climbed up to the park on the hill, where there is a beautiful view of the area, including the theater from the top.

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
