Roman theater of Veiux-Poitiers
If you are a historical buff, or even if you are not, but fancy a drive through the north country side, Veiux-Poitiers is a scenic point to spend a short time.
The Roman Theater there is in a state of ruins, but there are some displays showing the archeological finds of the area and the more specifically the Ancient Poitiers.
To get here, you optimally need your own car. Drive north of Poitiers to the town of Naintre (highway A10 or D23 or D910). From Naintré, go another 5 minutes. The Veiux-Poitiers site is between the nearby towns of Domine and Chezelle.
Its open part of the year, so check the website for visiting time and prices.

More of the Best Romanesque Chruches Are Nearby
If the Romanesque has attracted you in Poitiers and you have a car and a little time, there are two visits you can make in a morning or afternoon and also find a nice place for lunch. They are both east on N151. The farthest, St.-Savin is 21 miles. Chauvigny is half-way there. We will have Tips under each of those places. St.-Savin is one of the earliest examples of (church) fresco painting after the Dark Ages and is quite exceptional.
