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.
In the city center is the archeological site with the old roman ruins. It consist of 2 parts on each side of the road. One side also has the little museum with findings from the site.
After buying entrance tickets you get a map with explantions from the various buildings.
See my t-logue for more pictures.
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 ...
Walking to the top of the town you will come across a lovely fountain and square. The fountain has some wonderul face carvings on it.
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.
every tuesday there is a big wonderful, colourfull market where you can buy all the regional products and much more.
There are two grand sites (classed Monuments Historical inn 1942 and 1943) : Puymin and La Villasse.
