Abstract : The Virgo interferometer is one of the big observatories aimed at detecting gravitational waves. This paper will describe the Virgo + upgrades and the commissioning work performed between the first Virgo science run (VSR1) and the second Virgo science run (VSR2). Some first results of VSR2 will be discussed, which was recently started with a good duty cycle and an inspiral range for the detection of binary neutron-star inspirals of 10 Mpc. To conclude, an outlook will be given on some future upgrades of the detector.
