Roman Legions at the Ancient Theater of Orange

On Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September 2015, the Roman legions invest the city and the Ancient Theater of Orange. This family event steeped in history promises to be a highlight of the start of the school year.

For the 3rd consecutive year, the Ancient Theater and the city of Orange welcome the "Roman Legions". A life-size reconstruction to relive the time of the founders of the Roman colony of Orange in 35 BC.

During a whole weekend, around a hundred re-enactors are called upon to invest the city and its Ancient Theater - listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site - to the delight of young and old. The Legions will set up their camp in the heart of the Ancient Theater, a unique opportunity to discover the daily life of legionaries at the time of the Emperor Augustus.

Military maneuvers, parades, gladiatorial fights, fun and educational workshops are on the program for this family event, unmissable for all history buffs.
