2016 Trip – Tip 3 – France – In Nimes

When you visit Nimes make sure to look at some sights other than The Arena. If you are lucky enough to have the Michelin – Languedoc Roussillon Tarn Gorges – Guide, follow the two walk suggestions in there, especially the one that takes you to the wonderful Jardins de la Fontaine. Watch as men play petanque, children race around the colonnaded terraces, and families feed swans. There’s also another Roman temple here and also the last remaining remnant of the original Roman fortifications.

Don’t miss the Maison Carree or the Modern Art Museum opposite. The TER train takes 35 minutes from Avignon to Nimes. The train station is lovely and the staff are helpful when something goes wrong, such as when a train hits someone on the tracks and the line is blocked as happened today.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
