  • The archaeological sites of Puymin and the Vilasse are without a doubt the best-known tourist attractions in Vaison romaine. Given the size of these two sites and the time we had, we did visit that site Puymin (excellent suggestion by the representative of the OT). We started with a visit to the Museum Théo Desplans (to be noted that it close its doors between 12:30 and 14: 00 in October while the rest of the Puymin site can be visited freely) dedicated to different themes: prehistory and protohistory, the Organization of the Gallo-Roman town (baths and aqueduct), monuments of audiences (including Imperial statues from the theater), trade and crafts (Tools (, coins, amphorae), religion (head of Apollo in marble), funeral rites (objects found in the graves) and Gallo-Roman home (models, dishes, glassware). We ended by the visit of the Roman theatre (superb), home to Bower as well as home to the Lauré Appollon (well documented by panels but a tour would have been preferable to enjoy). There is really a lot to visit in Vaison; the ticket-pass at 8th (ad) gives access to all sites.
