“Glad we stop”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We found this attraction from our GPS after visiting St Remy. When we were there it was quiet. Walking throughout the "town" with the written guides takes you back 2000 years. Our family enjoyed this visit a great deal. It is a must stop if you enjoy roman history. I am always a sucker for ruins.

“2000 years of history”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

My ten year old daughter was mesmerized by Glanum. The information boards in situ were informative, as were the models in the information area. A great deal of work has gone into the restoration and maintenance of the site, of which the French should be proud. No crowds which added to our experience. The views were fantastic of St. Rely and the surrounding area.

“True feeling of what it was really like”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

My husband and I visited this archeological site en route through France. The car park is nice and large and I would imagine in the height of the season this is just as well. The site itself is very well presented with a very good written guide so that you can walk around on your own but still get the true feel of the place. Very interesting visitor centre as well.

Well worth the visit.

If you love visiting ancient ruins, this is the lace for you! The foundations and layout of this Greek and then Roman town are well reserved. You can stroll though and imagine what it would have been like during its active years.

“Impressive and user friendly”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Were not planning to visit Glanum initially but glad we did. We were surprised to find such an impressive site without the usual requisite pomp and circumstance. Nice small building to buy the tickets,with a little gift shop. Parking was very easy. The sight was not crowded at all so it was a pleasure strolling through this very cool ancient town. The structures were also well labeled and the descriptions were clear and very informative. Nice way to spend a couple of hours.
