    Budget lodging in Orange

    by

    For our 2nd night in France we decided to stay in Orange and selected Le Glacier based on it's great reviews, reasonable cost and it's location within walking distance of the major sights in Orange. While my reaction to the hotel wasn't quite as glowing as some of the reviews, it was a fine place to stay and the desk staff was very good with directions and recommendations. I would stay here again if I returned to Orange.

    The room was the smallest that we had on this trip, we had a standard room which is the smallest and cheapest they offer (75€ in high season). French hotel rooms are notorious for being small and really we don't need anything but a place to sleep and shower. The bathroom was almost as large as the bedroom, from the pictures you can see on their website the rooms are all different in decor and shape.

    The shower had plenty of hot water and good water pressure, the toiletries weren't much so bring your own.

    Unique Quality: Parking is extra, the hotel has parking available for 8€ but since we were there on the weekend, we parked in a lot across the street and only had to pay from when we arrived on Saturday until 19:00 (2.10€) and then the parking was free on Sunday until Monday morning at 9am.

    Breakfast is also an extra 9€, we don't ever get breakfast if there's an additional charge since we're not big breakfast eaters, there was a patisserie just a couple of doors down from the hotel if you want something smaller.

    I think the hotel had free wifi but we didn't use it.

    Directions: Print the directions from their website under "access", very easy to follow

Travel Tips for Orange

The theater of Orange

by JLBG

The theater of Orange is in the UNESCO World Heritage list with the following comment: "The ancient theatre of Orange, with its 103-m-long facade, is one of the best preserved of all the great Roman theatres"

Note that this is not an amphitheater or arena, oval shaped, but a theater, half oval shaped, with a front wall.
I have here only a few picture from the outside : we were going home from Marseille, we were two hours away from home, the visit lasts one hour and there had been a warning of heavy snow falls forecast in the afternoon on the autoroute ! So, we chose to leave the visit of the theater for another visit to Orange.

The theater was restored from 1825 to 1856. In 1869, it was used for a Roman show. As it had a great success, shows were done later on a yearly basis and since 1902 the Chorégies d'Orange (visit their site) are organized with great success.

Roman theaters are always built on the side of a hill, to make building the tiers easier, with a high wall that send the sounds from the stage towards the audience. The Orange theater is in good condition but is nevertheless in repair, as can be seen on the first photo of the front. It is the only building of its kind which still has its acoustic stage wall, whose size is quite impressive: 103 meters long, 37 meters high, 1.80 meters thick. The stage itself is 65 meters long, with optimally useful space of 47 meters. Depth varies between 12 and 16 meters.
