Orange, France

Orange is home to another of the greatest Roman remains still in existence. It is a complete Roman Theater that is the best preserved of any in the world. It is one of only 3 in the world that still has the accoustic wall still standing (the other 2 are in Asia Minor.) Orange was originally founded as basically a retirement town for Roman soldiers to live in after their 20 years service. This theater was part of the luxurious attractions of this lovely town in the South of Gaul (France.)


  1. Looks very interesting.Will we see this? michele

  2. I'm not sure what all we'll see while in the Provence region of France. There's so much to see and so little time.
