A weekend at the 3-star Kyriad location in Orange will launch you straight into ancient times. Don your toga and set out to explore the Roman forum's perimeter wall, the hemicycle, the gymnasium, the triumphal arch, and Gallo-Roman ruins. This will also give you the chance to choose from the abundant restaurants in the city for a pleasant evening out. The next day, why not continue learning about the city's history with the prince of Orange “Prince Nassau Trail”. Of all the monuments from this period, don’t miss the Louis de Silhol hotel, the Georges Van Cuyl hotel, the hospice center and the academy, all built in the 16th century.
If you're staying in Orange for a week, once you explore the historic center, go for a getaway in Provence. Ask your Kyriad hotel receptionist for some tips – he or she will be thrilled to recommend some sites. Just 12 or so kilometers outside the city, visit Mornas and its imposing medieval castle at the foot of a cliff. Then head toward Séguret, one of the most beautiful villages in France, the charming Vaison-la-Roman, Gigondas-les-Dentelles, famous for its lace, the Vaucluse Mountains, Montmirail and its vineyards that produce red and white wines, and last but not least, Avignon and its Palais des Papes.
What place could be better than Orange and its 3-star Kyriad hotel to put into practice the Roman motto, Mens sana in corpore sano (a healthy mind in a healthy body)? Embark on a canoe adventure in the gorges of Ardèche or visit an Accrobranche park (Ventoux Aventures) to let the whole family work up an appetite before fueling up at the restaurant! In September, participate in the Roman Feast and immerse the whole family in the ambiance and culture of ancient Rome with gladiators and other legionnaires.
