Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Bollène and its surroundings
Bollene is perfectly located for those wishing to explore the magnificent French countryside; you are sure to find some spectacular and breath-taking walks of greenery and natural beauty nearby. In the nearby town of Orange, you can find some beautiful Roman architecture, and it is perhaps most famous for its Roman theatre, the Théâtre antique d'Orange, which is generally considered to be one of the most well-preserved and stunning in Europe. The nearby Roman arch is also well worth a visit, and much of the Roman ruins in Orange are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Should you feel like learning a little more about Orange’s Roman history, then head to the town’s museum, which houses an informative and extensive collection of interesting Roman artefacts and historical pieces. For those wishing to make the trip south to Avignon, there are a huge number of wonderful sights; the Notre Dame des Doms and the Calvet museum to name just two. Alternatively, for those looking to sample some of southern France’s famous food and produce, the Les Halles market in Avignon is an excellent place to go. However you choose to spend your time, you are sure to have a comfortable and relaxing stay in the Campanile Bollene.
