Visited during 'free time' in the course of a group river cruise. It's across the Pont de Lattre de Tassigny, a 10 minute walk from the main attractions in the town but very well worth the effort. A large open-air site to explore with a...More

This museum (both indoor and outdoor) displays roman era mosaics, wine jars and remains of warehouses and pavilion. The mosaics are particularly nice and detailed. You can get an audioguide in different languages. There is a dedicated parking lot.

I love architecture!!! The Musee Gallo Romain was full of real, local artifacts. You won't feel overwhelmed. It's just the right size and if you're feeling cooped up inside you can easily walk around the ruins outside. It was very similar (on a smaller scale)...More

Comprehensive museum of Roman ruins and mosaics. Incredible models depicting structures as they would have been in the 1st century. Expect to spend the good part of an afternoon taking it all in. You will be exhausted, mentally and physically, but it will have been...More

In a picturesque setting next to the Rhone river this modern building hosts a deconstructed Roman villa. In separate parts are reconstructed mosaics and wall paintings from a variety of villas put together to make up a pretend villa. The craftsmanship is superb. Outside is...More

We were on a river cruise and our boat moored at Vienne. It's a small town and the attractions are walkable from the centre. There is a train station but I don't know what it connects to. I suggest you look online.

The Vienne museum is bigger, with an emphasis on mosaics. Much easier to park a car, too.
