Right in the Middle of the Square!
Feb 2020
It's quite something to walk around a corner in Vienne and find yourself gazing at a genuine Roman temple, right in the middle of a square, surrounded by buildings where modern people live and eat! It is in such good shape it's hard to believe that it is so old (1 BC, I think.) You can get really close and walk all around it. Really, a sight not to be missed and you don't have to go to Rome to see it.

Two thousand years old and still standing proud in Vienne!

What a monument! I'm actually staying in an apartment overlooking this temple and I feel being transported back in time! Built around 1 BC. AD and dedicated to Augustus and his wife Livia. It's not quite the traditional Roman Temple as one side is walled off (the oldest part of this structure) but stunning nonetheless with its Corinthian columns order. It's inside a lovely square about a few minutes walk to Gare de Vienne. This is a very small city but really worth exploring especially this auspicious temple in the heart of this gorgeous city of Vienne.

What a Surprise
Nov 2019
What a surprise it was to turn a corner and see this very large first century Roman temple. It is in remarkable condition, and may be one of the largest intact Roman
Temples in existence.

Yes, it is fenced off from the public, but it is amazing to see.

Depending on how many photos one takes it can be admired in about 15 minutes.

Visit the temple as part of a walking tour
Sep 2019
The best way to see the best of this old Roman town is on foot or perhaps the little tourist train which starts from the Tourist office on the riverside.
We took the walk, an easy route following the brass inserts in the pavement, and the map provided by the tourist office.
The Roman amphitheatre is actually closed off but there are great views from the nearby platform. and further down on route there is Temple d'Auguste et de Livie
A well worthwhile visit, it is a pity more tourists don't break their journey here instead of hammering down the autoroute on the way South...

Fenced off old temple in town square
Oct 2019 • Business
Looks a bit unloved and is fenced off to keep people from damaging it

Felt unloved and brooding behind its bars

First Century and Still Here

It was amazing to see this temple and realize how long it has been here. It was worth a quick day trip from Lyon to see this.

Nice place to spend a day walking around. A piece of history within a nice little town. Friendly people, great restaurants, great place to taste local delicatessen.

Beautiful
Jun 2019
We visited Vienne (Monday 3rd June) as part of an organised tour and, after climbing a steep hill to the Roman amphitheatre, it was a great relief to return to the town centre. The temple of Augustus and Livia stands incongruously in a square surrounded by cafes. A beautiful Roman structure and a must see.

One of the preserved Roman temples in the world
Oct 2018 • Friends
This Roman temple is the main tourist attraction in Vienne. It survived the ages in its excellent condition because it never got into disuse: it was used as a catholic church until the French revolution, and served a variety of purposes afterwards.

It stands in the middle of a square. You cannot enter it. But you can sit on one of the terraces have a coffee and admire it.

Stunning
Jul 2019 • Family
For us, it was closed to the public, but we could still see how massive it is around! It’s amazing to see how long such a structure has lasted, and how something like this is surrounded by food places and just another part of this city.
