We arrived into Vaison Romain late in the afternoon and parked the car outside the town and walked into it. You get two villages for the price of one: Vaison la Romain's "modern" lower City has worthwhile Roman Ruins which we did not have enough time to see, a lone pedestrian street, and a lively main square and a Cafe. The car-free medieval hill town looms above with meandering cobbled lanes, a dash of art galleries and cafes, and a ruined castle with a fine view from it's base. The city is split in two by the Ouveze River. The Roman Bridge connects the more modern lower town (Ville-Basse) with the hill-capping medieval upper town. Really there was nothing of particular importance of the upper part of the village that we walked around but to see a fortified medieval old town, pretty cobbled lanes and a enchanting fountains to photograph. I'm glad we got to experience it but wished we would have had time to see the Roman Ruins but maybe if there is a next time!
