This site includes some of the finest Roman ruins in southern France, and the visit makes a very pleasant experience for a morning or afternoon. Built on successive layers of even more ancient settlements, the Roman town has been somewhat restored, and gives a good impression of life at the time of Augustus Cesare. The site was established because of... More

This is an ancient Greek city uncovered by archaeologists, in the care of the French Government. Endlessly fascinating, this place will entice you and tempt you to explore again and again, and to visit again and again.

Hidden off the highway (the only real sign are the two large pieces on the opposite side of the highway) is this fascinating old Roman city dating back to the 6th & 7th centuries BC.

This archeological site is very interesting to walk through and feel a connection to the past. Walking paths were managed easily. Benches throughout as well.

rising above the local foliage are two well kept and easily identifiable pieces of Greco Roman architecture - well worth a 10 to 15 minute visit and in great condition, given their relative age.

Sadly it is closed on Mondays but the arch across the street is visible all the time but the asylum that Van Gogh was admitted to is just down the street. A must to see if a Van Gogh admirer

It's truly interesting to be able to wander all over this ancient Roman archeological site. Descriptive plaques in a number of languages show what has existed and shows what remains now.

While the wars for control of the area, between the Romans and the local tribes, not to mention the ravages of time, left most of the structures in ruins, there is still enough here to provide a sense of the ancient place. A one-hour visit to the ruins, along with a visit to the adjacent hospital/museum where Van Gogh lived... More

Glanum is one of those places that takes a little effort to get to...but is worth it. It is about a fifteen minute walk from the center of St, Remy...but the walk is through prime vanGogh territory and most enjoyable. Travelers by car will find plenty of parking on site. The historic Roman town displays a classic antiquity shared with... More
