Glanum, near St Remy in Provence, is a little known but very well preserved Roman (and pre-Roman) town. It's odd, as given how impressive it is, it isn't well promoted - we only visited it as we stumbled across it in the Rough Guide. Even once you think you're there, you have to hunt around to find the path to the site itself from the road.
Of course, much of the site is in ruins, but many of them are substantial - one thing that jumps out at you straight away is how tall many of the wall are. Look out in particular for the temples and the sacred well. If you're into things Roman, this is a must see - almost as impressive as Pompeii or Herculaneum.
