This museum is fabulous, complete with the Roman ruins (homes, baths, commercial warehouses) that can be visited outside and in situ, plus an incredible indoor museum. The museum has an incredible collection of Roman mosaics and a great audiotour.

This very modern museum spans portions of the old ruins of a huge Roman Settlement along the Rhone across the river from Vienne. From what we can glean, the site was uncovered when the new high school was under construction. This area of the Rhone...More
