Because life has changed so much over the millennia, it is hard to comprehend the size and scope and the uses of ancient ruins. Some places retain or have been restored to a vast and awe-inspiring semblance of what they once were, think: Pompeii, Rome, even Stonehenge... and add Glanum to that list. The site is enormous. It is impressive.... More

Not a large site, but well-worth a visit if you are in the Arles/St. Remy area. Delightfully uncrowed the day my young daughters and I visited.

As advertised! A mini Pompeii. A must see if you appreciate Pompeii and Hurculinium. Similar to Epheseus as well.

There isn't much left, but it was very interesting and to see a site with so much history that you can wander among is stirring.

On the outskirts of St. Remy and an easy 10 minute walk from Cloister St. Paul (where Van Gogh lived), brings you to a small display of Roman artifacts. Note that this is not the fee charged archealogical site, however, we were pressed for time and felt it was just as intriguing. You can walk right up to these structures... More

Close to Saint Remy de Provence (yes that town of Vincent van Gogh) are the ancient ruins of Glanum. It is a nice walk but can become very hot as there is almost no shadow to be found. interesting for all ages with an interest in history, although it might be tedious for the very young children.

We were pressed for time and chose to the Triumphal Arch and Mausoleum at the entrance only. They were beautiful. There's parking if you drive or its a 20-25 minute walk up hill from St. Remy.

If you are in St. Remy or anywhere close in Provence, these are ruins, not to be missed. Other places in Europe have floor mosaics, which we didn't see here. But the scale of the ruins and the many centuries of development they represent, are amazing.

We arrived on site very early in the morning and place was still quiet. We enjoyed very much the view of the Roman ruins, in particular the arch of triumph and masoleum. Not to be missed.

This is an amazing site with masses for all levels on interest. There are not many places where one can appreciate a whole slice of a Roman town with streets lined on BOTH sides with buildings - and a superb set of on-site illustrations that prise apart a complex 4 phase (at least) development. A MASSIVE and unexplained failing of... More
