Indulge yourself, sitting in the shade, with a glass of chilled rosé in hand, gazing in awe at Les Arènes, one of the best preserved Roman amphitheaters in the world. Relax and gaze at the beautiful Maison Carré while devouring ice-cream in an adjacent café. Enjoy strolling along the impressive Rue Jean Juares, exploring the magnificent Jardin de la Fontaine.
