AttractionsSaint-Romain-en-Gal

On the right bank of the Rhône River 30 miles south of Lyon you will find one of the largest Gallo-Roman archaeological sites in France – the Archaeological Museum at Saint-Romain-en-Gal. Saint-Romain-en-Gal once was a neighborhood of Vienne located across the Rhône, when Vienne was a Gallo-Roman city. The visitor to Saint-Romain-en-Gal is able to experience what it must have been like to live in a Roman city. As Saint-Romain-en-Gal offers an assortment of artifacts, the remains of buildings - townhouses, public baths, markets and warehouses along with paved Roman streets.

The Archaeological Museum at Saint-Romain-en-Gal includes not only the outdoor archaeological site but also a permanent indoor display of Gallo-Roman mosaics. The mosaics come in all shapes and sizes and are worth seeing just in themselves. Unfortunately I was not permitted to take photos of the mosaics so you will just have to trust me! The Archaeological Museum also has temporary exhibitions on display throughout the year, when I visited there was an exhibit on winegrowing in the region. There is a separate admission for temporary exhibitions.

The Archaeological Museum at Saint-Romain-en-Gal can be easily visited in under two hours and is open year round. Very little information is available in English.
