The antique Site of the Villasse
In the city of Vaison-la-Romaine, ranked among "the most beautiful detours in France", discover a true open-air museum - the biggest Gallo-Roman site in France. The vestiges cover over fifteen hectares, and the public can visit eight hectares of ruins on two sites which stand at the base of the medieval city, silent witness to the past grandeur of the Roman city of Vasio.
The archaeological site of La Villasse lies below this quarter, and is bordered by the street with shops and columns. See the public baths, rich private homes of exceptional size, such as the House with the Silver Bust, covering over 5000m² with a series of rooms, courtyards, gardens. Also see the "Dolphin House". As it was being excavated, this house revealed the successive transformations which changed it from a modest, rustic home into a comfortable city mansion - testimony to the developments in the city of Vasio.
Guided visits during school holidays, or visit on your own with an audioguide in F, GB, D, NL + special commentary for the younger audiences. A fun booklet is also available free of charge at the museum for children aged between 6 and 12 years old.
