Orange, for those who come from the north, is the gate to the South of France. A symbol of this passage, the old Arc de Triomphe stands on Via Agrippa that Roman legions used to take to travel from Arles to Lyon. But the true pride of Orange is the théâtre antique, the best preserved ancient theatre from the Roman Empire. Each summer, at nightfall, the famous Chorégies take place, attracting some of the best singers in the world.
