Vaison-la-Romaine

Located 27 km from Orange, 50 km from Avignon, 10 km from the Dentelles de Montmirail and 10 km from the base of the Mont Ventoux, Vaison-la-Romaine is part of "Voconces region." It is surrounded by seven hills covered with forests and vineyards.

The Ouvèze river flows through the town and separates the upper town from the modern city. On the left bank, backed by a rocky outcrop, extends the Upper Town, which dates back to the 13th Century. The castle of the Counts of Toulouse dominates the city. On the right bank of the Ouvèze are two different quarters: the site of the former Roman colony and the modern part of the town. Archaeological excavations have revealed huge and luxurious Gallo-Roman mansions with sophisticated interior, and a Roman theatre.
