Nimes, France - 

The French Roman City in 360 Degrees

During our Tour of France, I was lucky to find 2 delightful towns in France what were at taste of Italy.  First was Annecy 
the second was the charming town of Nimes that is a cute little mini Rome in France.  The Coluseum is in great shape was built in 70 ad.  The Areana in Nimes is still in use today and hosts 2 annual bullfights during the Feria de Nimes and other public events.  We just hit the big Roman highlights here, but this area is rich in other Roman structures, and city walls from the time of Christ. You could spend a few days in this area exploring all the cool art museums and things this town has to offer.

One of my favorite things was the surprise with just how magical the apartment we rented was.  It was so much better than I expected.  What an adorable place, and the owner was so sweet.  I would go back and stay here again in a heartbeat.

Funny enough, I had almost forgotten that I hadn't finished my post on this wonderful spot.  Then today I sat doing a puzzle we got for Christmas of Mont St Michel, and I realized that I needed to finish this post.  So in honor of the beautiful puzzle that helped me remember to finish this post, this is my first sponsor link today.  Please consider browsing them, for even the few pennies that it send my way helps send more adventures your way.
