  • Beautiful sites a must visit. It is one of the few sites where ambulation leaves this impression, we're transported to another time and imagine very well the life of yesteryear. Essential for those who like archaeology and heritage (if possible to do with a guide to appreciate). Don't forget to get then to the Cathedral of our Lady of Nazareth to see the re-use of Roman stones.

  • Here were the Romans and your everyday life in a provincial town stand out reconstructed. The amphitheater is very impressive. It is probably used in the season for events. The excavations continue but probably in the Zwischzeit. The Museum is the featured point of excavation. The excavation site is probably divided into two parts, one should look at both parts.

  • The Roman ruins in Vaison-la-Romaine are centrally located. No need to pay an admission to visit inside the gate ~ the view from the sidewalk was perfect.  more »
