Looking for logistic info re: GLANUM

Jump to last reply

Hi, all. Beginning to flesh out a trip for 2014 and have an interest in seeing Glanum, outside of St Remy, actually our primary reason to go to St Remy...

1. We will not be using a car and plan to bus it over from Avignon to St Remy. I have found some posts here and there about Glanum, and that it should be walkable from St Remy. Of course, one then wanders around the site, and then needs to walk back to St Remy to bus 'home'. So, wondering just how 'walkable' that is for two 60-somethings, reasonably fit...?

2. What is the road like that we would be walking along? Is there room along the roadside to do this safely? (not really interested in the 'paintings walk' route, so I'm asking about the regular road avenue Vincent van Gogh)...

3. Are these sites obviously signposted so we can't miss them, lol?

4. Very important ;-) is there a working WC around there? I think they have a visitor center.

5. It appears the St Paul de Mausole is also 'just there' and would like to see that.

6. Has anyone had lunch at Taverna Romana which overlooks Glanum?

7. Our trip is in mid/late September, is this still tourist season? (so Visitor Center and sites would be open)

8. Regarding closures of St Remy shops, cafes etc - - would that more likely be a Sunday or Monday, so I can avoid those days?

Excited to receive any and all of your tips, thank you!
