Spend a day with Roman-bashers Astérix and Obélix at Parc Astérix theme park. It is the ultimate antidote to Americanised Disneyland with zones split into Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, the Land of the Vikings, Egypt and the indomitable Gaulish Village. Thrill-seekers can defy gravity on Goudurix, Europe's largest rollercoaster, while younger kids get wet on the Grand Splatch log flume. For some serious handshaking, Astérix, Obélix and friends wander around and a jamboree of live acts pumps up the pace.
