  • We appreciated this Roman ruins for the rather natural environment that has been kept by this local community and the French cultural effort to be genuine with historical features that remain..Vaison-La-Romaine is a special location to visit for a variety of good reasons..we really enjoyed our afternoon here…
  • Very large excavation/ reconstruction of a roman town. A theatre, Forum,baths, roads, the lot. If you're interested in this sort of thing, it's quite the sight.
  • Great archeology site, worth a visit
  • I’m disappointed that no one mentioned in these reviews that the audiotours are not available, due to sanitary reasons. And there is not a lot of other information, no booklets. A Qr-code didn’t work. There is a leaflet with basically just a map with a lot of Numbers. In the small museum on the site all the signs are in French, nothing in English. I don’t recommend going there this year, a waste of 9 euro’s.
  • An amazing trip into our past, showing the Gallo Romans using Ikea-style kitting methodology, and a Roman emperor Hadrian as a nude Hellenic hero (and his wife fully dressed) #hetoo ;-)
