  • Many things to see if you take the time. Some videos, at the Museum, make it possible to have another (livelier) look at what at first glance appears as ruins of another time. The size of the site allows to imagine what could be Vaison in Roman times and the Organization of the city, on the one hand, and the home of a wealthy Roman family, on the other hand.

  • After Pompeii this is the most evocative Roman town I have visited. You really get a sense of how they lived in their villas and can walk down a 2000 year old shopping street  more »
  • Let's talk first about the practical aspects: free parking and tourist next to archaeological sites, all in a pretty village with restaurants and bars! Price is €8, which is not expensive (visit of two archaeological sites and Museum!) and the visit is valid 24 hours, which is convenient for heritage lovers who like me stay hours... Take the guided tour (included) in the price or the audio-guides in addition which are of good quality, it is essential in my view to appreciate sites (little explanatory cartels). There is a booklet for the child audience. I would first advise to visit the Museum (beautiful Museum with interesting themes such as Gallo-Roman home, trade or religion) and present remains found in-situ. Then the archaeological sites. A favorite for the site of the city (the aisle of merchants and home to the Dauphin) and the mosaic of the Peacock to the Museum.
