Really, Vaison la Romaine is worth the journey. The Cité Medieval is just an unspoiled treasure. Visitors aplenty but they walk through as there are some restaurants and only one tourist shop. There is plenty to eat and buy over the other side of the...More

A definite must see in the area. The medieval city provides an interesting opportunity to walk around and explore and Bistro du’O is a perfect lunch spot. Delicious food, great wine selection and beautiful views.

The market on Tuesday is one of the best in Provence. Don't miss it! And lunch in town -- lots of choices. The old town is a lovely stroll with great vistas.

If you're from north America this is the kind of town you want to visit. Authentic old stuff that gives you a sense of history. Visually attractive and not overrun with tourists.
