What to do in Orange?
And in the region?

Discover Orange

The Grand Hotel d'Orange is ideally located in the city so that you can easily reach the many Roman remains and historical monuments in the city on foot. The two most important witnesses of the Roman era in the city are the Arc de Triomphe and the Ancient Theater, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites and only a 1.5 minute walk from the hotel.

In addition to the discovery of Orange's heritage, don't hesitate to get lost in the region and discover treasures that the whole world envies: the surrounding vineyards and their prestigious appellations, Avignon and the Popes' Palace, the Dentelles de Montmirail, l'Isle sur Sorgue, the Ochre trail... 

So many reasons to extend your stay at the Grand Hôtel d'Orange.

For your trips and/or visits, think "ecomobility": bicycle, electric bicycle, city bus, small tourist train... You will limit your impact on the planet while discovering the charms of our heritage.

European World Heritage The Arc de Triomphe of Orange

The Ancient Arch of Orange, commonly known as the Arc de Triomphe of Orange, is a monumental Roman arch from the early 1st century. It marked the northern entrance to Arausio, now Orange, via the Via Agrippa, currently Route Nationale 7.

The Triumphal Arch of Orange was listed on France's first register of historical monuments in 1840 and has been a UNESCO World Heritage site in Europe since 1981.

Just a stone's throw from the Grand Hôtel d’Orange, it's a great opportunity for a stroll to discover all the extraordinary details of this majestic monument.

UNESCO World Heritage The Roman Theatre

Built under the reign of Augustus in the 1st century BC by the veterans of Julius Caesar's Second Legion, the Ancient Theatre is a striking testament to Roman civilization. It is one of the best-preserved Roman theatres in the world and still features its impressive outer wall (or stage wall) with the original elevation: 104 meters long and 35 meters high.

Today, the theatre hosts tens of thousands of spectators each year for various summer events, including the famous Chorégies.

The audio-guided tour brings the history of the monument to life; you can also discover the Museum of Art and History, which traces the rich history of Orange from Antiquity to the 20th century.
