The region around Orange also offers a wide range of sports activities including golfing, walking and hiking, cycling, skiing, horseback riding, climbing and paragliding.

Orange is an incredibly exciting city with a great many historic and cultural remains.

First of all Orange is home for two of Europe’s finest monuments from Roman Times, le Théâtre Antique and l’Arc de Triomphe. Theatre Antique is from the 1st century A.D., and one of the best preserved antique theatres in the world. The theatre is famous world wide for its cultural events, Les Chorégies d’Orange. The theatre is also the only of its kind to have retained its Imperial statue. Arc de Triomphe is from the same period and is one of the very best preserved Roman triumph arches.
Théâtre Antique

The antique theatre lies at the foot of Colline St-Europe.

At the top of this hill there is a big park with shady trees, walking and jogging paths as well as a Promenade botanique. From here, there are outstanding views of the theatre, the city and the plain of the Rhône, all the way to the mountain range, Dentelles de Montmirail to the east. On the hilltop you can also find the ruins of the castle of the Dukes of Orange.

The old quarter in Orange is most interesting, it actually reminds you of a big Provencal village with its narrow winding streets, well restored houses and small shady squares.

<i>Arc de Triomphe</i>

The turning point of the city’s life is its daily market – April to October – where you can find French delicatessen and all kinds of different food.
