Fodor's Expert Review Les Antiques
Two of the most miraculously preserved classical monuments in France are simply called Les Antiques. Dating to 30 BC, the Mausolée (mausoleum), a wedding-cake stack of arches and columns, lacks nothing but a finial on top, and is dedicated to a Julian, probably Caesar Augustus. A few yards away stands another marvel: the Arc Triomphal, dating to AD 20. A lovely spot for a stroll—and within easy walking distance from the city center—the site is open during the day and at night (when handsomely illuminated).
