The Roman Bridge at Vaison-la-Romaine is a Roman bridge over the river Ouvèze in the southern French town of Vaison-la-Romaine. The bridge was built by the Romans in the 1st century AD, with a single arch spanning 17.20 m. It is still in use, and has survived severe flooding that swept away some more recent bridges.

    Not much to it .. the old town above it was very interesting though. As far as the bridge it's old and historic but not easy to get a great photo.  more »

    This bridge between 2 steep is impressive, but it's not the prettiest of the region (I prefer that of Nyons)

    Beautiful bridge in perfect condition. One of the few still in service today. To see in this beautiful quiet city!

    This old roman bridge is historically important, but there's not much to do here and unfortunataly the surrounding buildings a quite ugly. Otherwise it's a nice site to start the tour of the medieval town (which is five stars)...

    Well preserved Roman bridge on Vaison La Romaine. It's a working bridge and leads into the town itself across the river.

    Authentic Roman artifact still in continuous use connecting the medieval and Roman sections of Vaision. Withstood submerging flood unscathed.
