Roman Theater in France

During our month holiday in Europe, we took a road trip from (Alicante) Spain to (Skåne) Sweden. It was my husband's idea since he wanted to show me the European highway. Although it took us four days to reach Sweden but we didn't drive all the way. We had stopovers in Barcelona, Spain; Orange, France; Kassel, Germany; and Ødense, Denmark. We also spent the night in these cities staying at Ibis Hotels.

Orange, France is part of Provence- Alpes- Côte d'Azur region. It's a beautiful small city and one of its highlights is the Roman Theater. Built in the 1st century and is one of the best preserved of all the Roman theaters in the Roman colony of Arausio. In 1981 UNESCO declared the theater as a World Heritage Site.

I just love the theater, it feels like I'm actually back in the old times. It's so incredible how they can build and preserve a mega structure like this.
