Located in France's Vaucluse department, the town of Orange is reputedly the country's warmest city, based on temperature averages. Roman remains, considered among Europe's most impressive, are among the city's major draws while France's oldest festival, the Chorgies d'Orange, is held here in July.
The town's Roman elements, which include the Triumphal Arch of Orange and the Thtre Antique d'Orange, were declared World Heritage sites by UNESCO in 1981. The theatre, which dates from the reign of Emperor Augustus, is the showpiece and one of the best preserved structures of its kind anywhere in the world.
Annually, the Roman theatre is host to July's popular Chorgies d'Orange festival. Top opera singers have graced this event with their presence and singing talents over the years, with the likes of Placido Domingo, Montserrat Caball and Barbara Hendrix among them.
Also worth visiting and located close to the Roman theatre is the town's museum, a facility housing the largest Roman marble-etched maps ever to be discovered. Standing at 5.9 metres high and 7.5 metres wide, the maps display details of the Orange, Nimes and Montelimar areas.
Orange is a small town which can easily be discovered on foot, but to fully explore the region you will need a hire car. Avignon can be reached from Paris by train in just three hours, but there is no rail connection from Avignon to Orange. Book Orange car hire online in advance to take advantage of the best deals on the market.
There is a small selection of accommodation options available in Orange although neighbouring Avignon is home to a significantly wider selection.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver.
