The ruins are quite interesting giving the modern day visitor a glimpse into the ancient life of the Romans. The museum is also interesting. Amazingly, the ancient amphitheater is still in use today.

It is not Rome, but..the archaelogic site is pretty impressive. It gives a good view of the structure of a roman village. Nice, worth a short visit.

... So you know I'd love Vaison-la-Romaine. In fact, I made the pilgrimage up from our vacation rental in Orange, specifically to visit this Roman site. It was totally worth the time. Besides which, the area is staggeringly beautiful! [Do drive the mountain circuit, through...More

If you have been to other such sites you will be disappointed in this one. Not worth the cost of admission.

The ruins are wonderfully preserved in a park like setting. The theater is still used today. The museum collection is good. Don't miss the 12 century cathedral built using 1st century Roman column blocks for foundations.

These ruins are quite impressive, but we could only see from outside the fence as it did not appear to be open. Worth the trip.

The Roman attractions are divided into two main areas with extremely impressive archeological remains. Don't skip the small museum - the mosaics, sculptures, and informative films are well worth the detour. The theater, market area, and public toilets are all impressive. Worth every minute you...More
