The pillars of this temple, which looks something like a mini Parthenon, still stand at the centre of present day Vienne, everything else has just been built around it. Erected in about 25BC, the temple has since been employed as a church and a courthouse and it's now a museum. There's a cafe right outside the portico where you can sit and appreciate it in comfort, admiring the way some of the pillars have had sections replaced and some are entirely original.

Vienne has quite a few impressive Roman ruins that it's been built around.
