    Roman ruins at Glanum
    2 more images

    After you've checked the mausoleum and the triumphal arch, cross the road. There is an entire archeological excavation of a Roman village to visit.

    When you're done there, you can walk across the field and visit Van Gogh's asylum nearby . . . but that's another tip.

    If you are using St. Remy as a base for touring that area of Provence, there are quite a few things to do very nearby. One of the first things to visit is Glanum, a former Roman settlement that is now an archeological dig.

    On one side of the D-5 out of St. Remy (and well signposted) is the parking lot for Glanum with this large triumphal arch and the mausoleum beside it.

    Open from april 1 to September 30: 9-7

    Do nothing on a list except explore and enjoy

    by parisbill Written Jul 5, 2006

    I travel to Provence frequently for one of my small international businesses (importing essential oils for aromatherapy) and love it. The best tfree times are exploring the area and making my own discoveries that are never to be forgotten

    Along the roads of St Remy are signboards which mark the suppossed positions where Van Gogh painted. However, to better follow the route, why not arm yourself with a "Patrimoine" brochure that is available in your hotel or the tourist office and you can see for yourself how Van Gogh managed to turn the scene before you into a piece of art. I would say that it was very moving to be able to in the same location as the great artist. Don't forget to visit the Monastere St Paul where Van Gogh seeked treatment for his psychiatric problems outside ot the town.

    Before embarking on any trips on your own in or around St Remy de Provence, do make a trip down to the local tourist office. Outside there is a white-board stating the various programmes that is available for the week. It includes half-day nature trails in the Alpilles or a Vincent Van Gogh circuit.

    The other impressive structure is an Arch

    Formerly this spot was a Roman settlement named Glanum. The South of France has other reminders that it was once part of the Roman Empire...these were the first we saw, and were only about 20 minutes from where we stayed.

    Vincent van Gogh at St. Paul-de-Mausole

    At St. Paul-de-Mausole - much to our surprise - we found an exhibition centering around Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) who spent the last year of his life here.

    Glanum - Les Antiques

    This is the second most preserved Roman antiquity. It is free to just walk around what was once Glanum. We were using Cadogan's Provence guidebook for self-guided tour.
