Pont du Guard, Provence
This is one of the most preserved Roman aqueducts in the world. It was built in 19 B.C to carry water to Nimes. I'm trying to imagine a modern aqueduct lasting for 2000 years and I can't. I mean our roads can't even last through a winter storm.
Nimes, Provence
We stayed in a charming little establishment in Nimes. $8 a person and a view of the a 2000 year old arena. They still hold events in the arena.
