Orange France has two important Roman structures the Arc de Triomphe and the Theatre Antique d' Orange (27-25 BC). The Arc is to mark Julius Caesar's conquest of the Gauls. Orange is the center of the Cotes-du-Rhone vineyards. It is very easy to walk to the sites, we parked at the Arc. There is a nice little museum in front of the theatre.
