Visited this site with my husband and 3 teenagers. We were all blown away. You don't see much from the main road and parking lot, so we had no idea what a spectacular and large site this was until we entered. We must have spent 1.5-2 hours, despite the 90F+ HOT SUN. Interesting and informative self-guided pamphlet. We really enjoyed... More

This is a must for anyone coming within reach of St. Rémy! This huge Roman village has it all...scenery, preserved structure, and even a temple to Hercules with stones bearing Roman writing. My boys, who study Latin in school, were fascinated! The foundation that maintains this site has taken great pains to let visitors walk among the ruins and feel... More

Glanum ruins are certainly worth the time and the modest expense to visit. Allow about an hour to walk through the nearly intact ancient village.

This was an elaborate village that pre-dates Christ. It is extremely well preserved and is a very interesting and entertaining way to spend a few hours. The two monuments at the entrance are also very interesting...

If you are interested in ancient history, this is an excellent site to visit. While I enjoyed the sites in Arles, Glanum offered a greater glimpse into how the ancient citizens of Provence lived - dating as far back as the 6th and 7th centuries B.C. The guide provided to you pay your entrance fee, along with the signs offering... More

Glanum was interesting and from the top had lovely views back over St Remy and the valley. We went in May so the weather wasn't too hot. I think on a hot day it could be quite overwhelming as there was little shade.

Having visited quite a lot of Roman ruins over the years, I wasn't expecting to be so enthralled by this. The monuments by the Car Park were worth stopping to look at closely, but on walking up to the town I was most pleasantly surprised by the Visitor Centre and then the number of buildings and streets there were to...

We were traveling with 4 kids ages 8-14 and they all enjoyed this site. Unlike other ruins I have seen in the past, with this one, you get to walk right through it. The views from the site are beautiful and the descriptions of what ruin you are looking at added to the interest. As an added bonus, you're outside,... More

If your at least bit interested in Roman history and buildings, this site is a must see! An unbelievable collection of remains of Roman buildings and arches. You will not remember the twisting little roads you just navigated to reach this site, one of the most impressive collection of ruins available to see today. Worth the drive, take your time... More
