Another Roman theatre – Past Squares 12

This one in Orange, Provence. I saw this in the early ’80s, and was most impressed by the sheer scale of the thing:

  1. Crikey that is big, the people really put it into perspective

  2. and the size of the bell!!!!

  3. One I missed during my travels in France. Thanks for featuring it, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Thanks, now I get to go back to Italy!

  5. I can’t even imagine walking around old ruins. The sense of history surely is overwhelming 😀

  6. I enjoy all things Roman. During one of my visits to France, my s-i-l and I were exploring behind a chapel a family had erected along the road. Not far away was an old Roman bridge that was still used for animals and people to cross a small creek. What fun!

  7. Ohhhh … Orange! Je me reviens. 😃 And to be on that stage …

  8. Wow, never having been to Italy, or Greece, or, well any place where you might see ruins like this, I haven’t had the pleasure of being dwarfed by an old Roman theatre. Very impressive indeed.
