    All Roads Lead to Rome

    Some of the Roman Ruins

    Vaison La Romaine is famous for some of the oldest Roman ruins in France. I'm not really that interested in Roman history, but the walk I took past the ruins was beautiful and captivating. The town's Roman Ruins are next to the Tourist office and costs about 7 euros per person to get in. My friends and I were very tired, so we just walked around the park and despite not actually going inside got a very good look at the roman ruins any way. I felt guilty, and next time I'll pay to go in. There are still Roman archeological surveys going on throughout the city currently. The city is rich with roman history and culture. Some of the Roman statues and baths were very beautiful and impressive.

    Roman bridge

    Roman bridge - Vaison

    An authentic Roman bridge (unlike many other so-called Roman bridges in the area ...). This one didn't even need extensive reconstruction works and has remained more or less unchanged during the past two millennia ...

    Lovely scenery just outside the town

    Explore the lovely scenery by foot or by car, either way it makes for a nice excursion. The road from Vaison La Romaine to Malaucine is quite nice.
