Languedoc Itinerary

Day 5

Languedoc Itinerary Day 5

Today we leave the Camargue and head for Nimes. A major Roman town, Nimes boasts another spectacular Roman ampitheatre, and a beautifully preserved Roman temple facade, the Maison Carré.  We visit them both, they're amazing, but first we have to get there!
The first half of the day is almost completely flat as we leave the Camargue, and just before we start our first little climb, we'll visit the source of Perrier water.  As you can imagine, they've built a very interesting musuem and visit around the source, and we'll stop and explore.
This afternoon we cycle through beautiful farmland along tiny roads, passing through Genérac and Caissargues, before arriving in Nimes.
There is so much to see in Nimes, we'll try to arrive in good time so that we can get the most out of it. We'll visit the Arena, and the Tour Magne, part of the original Roman fortifications,  before arriving at the hotel right next to the Arena. 
Distance: 33 miles / 53 Km
