Sightseeing
The ancient town of Vaison la Romaine sits on the Ouvèze river. The town is in two parts with the modern town at the base of the hill and the Haute Ville (upper town), located on the high rock south of the river. The Haute Ville is the Medieval center of Vaison-la-Romaine, complete with 12th-century castle and many art galleries. It is lovely to wander the narrow streets and explore the old buildings and hidden corners. The two parts of Vaison-la-Romaine are joined by a single-arched Roman bridge over the river, still in use after 2000 years. The town has a fantastic weekly market on Tuesdays, good shops, cafés and restaurants and is packed with history and culture including the well preserved Roman ruins including forum and amphitheatre. During the summer, Vaison is bustling with music festivals, dance festivals and theatre.

Nyons is also in a region of northern Provence which grows lavender and the town is often bathed in the wonderful scent. Market day is on Thursday and in high season there is also a provencal market on Sunday.
