Les sites archéologiques de Puymin et La Villasse


Tourist service in Vaison-la-Romaine :

The visit of the Puymin hill takes you into a real-life neighbourhood of the Roman city, with paved streets, the shops, the Nymphea - a fountain and pools - the sanctuary known as the "Sanctuaire à Portiques", a public monument framing a vast garden with columns and rich patrician homes such as the Home with the wreathed Apollo, covering 2000 m2, which was perhaps the home of the Messii family, a leading family in Vasio. See the dining room (triclinium), the kitchens, private baths, latrines, and the big garden with portico and a pool. Also see the 3000 m2 home, the "Maison à la Tonnelle" built on 3 levels. Children can follow in the footsteps of young Lucius on a great mystery trail, and, together as a family, discover the riches and treasures of the archaeological site of Puymin and the Musée Théo Desplans. A fun booklet is also available free of charge at the museum for children between 6 and 12 years old. Guided tours of the site and monuments with an informative speaker take place during the school holidays, duration: 1.5 hours. Call to book on +33 (0)4 90 36 50 48
