Vaison-la-Romaine Sites antiques

At the foot of Mont Ventoux, the giant of Provence, discover the largest archaeological site in France.

On more than 8 wooded hectares, two preserved districts of the ancient Vasio (La Villasse and Puymin), reveal the remains of rich residences and their gardens, shopping districts, public baths and the theatre.

Located in the center of Puymin, on the hillside, the archaeological museum exhibits imperial marble statues (including the exceptional Couple of Hadrian and Sabine), magnificent polychrome mosaics, sculptures and many everyday objects which testify to the wealth of the city. It invites you to stroll through the history of the voconces and the development of the ancient city and teach you on the daily, cultural, commercial, religious and funerary practices of the Romans.

Come and discover the city with the Gallo-Roman sites and the museum, witnesses of the past grandeur of the ancient Vasio Vocontiorum.

Immerse yourself in the daily life of the owners of the Maison au Dauphin, a luxurious Gallo-Roman domus, with an animated film shown in the museum.
