Arc de Triomphe reviews
Not sure how long the scaffolding has been up but based on recent reviews it hasn't been long. So if you want to see it you will have to wait more »
triumphal arch in Orange/France. Its nice place to spend romantic evening, just sit and relax near this monument or take night photos more »
Came here right before Christmas, so we were able to walk around the Louvre and then see the Arch before heading to a Christmas Market. It was lovely and is in very good shape. Lots of people... more »
The only remaining structure that was once part of extensive fortifications built by the Romans in the town of Orange. There is ample parking nearby and free access to the Arch which I should add is a must see due it's remarkably good condition. The town centre is only 10 to 15mins easy walk from here.
Still in renovatoon (started at feb 2020) and it takes 15 months to renovate.
If you are a Roman history buff - this is a must! In my view, it is best seen and appreciated in the evening when it is all lit up, and one can see the details so much better. Truly unique decorations on this Arch that one doesnt often see, and well presented with paving and lots of night lights all around it. If you are going in the evening, read up on the Arch as it was dark other than in immediate vicinity of the Arch. There was no signage to speak off, and judging by elsewhere in ultra nationalistic Orange, I would very much doubt there would be anything in other than French if there was! Well worth the 10-15min hike from the heart of the city to see this triumphant beauty.
Such a jewel worth taking a walk to, since it's very close to downtown area.
