At the end of your visit, marvel at the statue of Vercingetorix overlooking the battlefield between the Gauls and the Romans.

  • It was a wet day so we had to find an indoor activity to escape from the rain and were glad we came to Alesia and learnt so much about Caesar’s gallic campaigns and the decisive battle with...  more »

  • Firstly the restaurant is superb. The food in the set menu deals is excellent. The museum is good I'd you don't already know the details. It tells the story well but is light on artefacts
  • Having seen a brilliant documentary about the battle and museum, it was a big letdown. No proper evidence of the site being genuine was made clear (postholes and debris) and there is growing evidence it was somewhere else entirely. The building also needs acoustic deadening to reduce the very harsh noise when children just exited and enjoying themselves are in the central area. Shop and café good, but this is no surprise in France!
  • Interesting museum. We spent 4 hours here with kids of 13 and 11.
  • Informative museum which kept the kids interested for hours. Audio guides were very helpful, there is a kids audio guide which kept our youngest (5 yrs) interested the whole time. The second site, is a must too.
  • Fascinating museum and reconstruction at the site of the last stand of the massesd armies of Gaul against Julius Caesar. This is a core part of the French primary school curriculum and so venue focused on French visitors but great for foreign visitors too . There is a modern museum and reconstruction of Roman seige walls. Good movie reconstructing the battle. Engaging for adults and our children (7rs). Good quality audio guide in several languages (we used mixture if English and french) with versions for adults and children. Interesting activities for children also available. Good shop with books (all french) and replica Roman stuff.
