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.

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.
