Ron – Camargue & Roman France
Run to Dover & Calais as normal, after leaving the Port of Calais we headed towards our overnight in Troyes. We were fortunate in having a good afternoon & evening with lots of views of the Birds of Prey which towards dusk sit along the motorway. We also spotted some Deer along the route.
Second day, once again weather wonderful for our drive down through Macon & Lyon en-route for Arles. Once again plenty of Birds of Prey and was just great to see the expanse of the French Countryside.
Another good day weather wise although a little dull in the afternoon but still warm.
We visited Nimes in the morning. Like a lot of French towns a tram system is being introduced, which made getting in and out a little awkward, but managed to get in with about a 3 min walk to the famous arena. Very nice place, big open square, very nice.
In the afternoon we made our way across county to the The Camargue and the coast with the Flamingos and Horses dotted around.
Some of the passengers went on a 1hr ½ boat cruise which they thought was great, with lots more views of Horses, Flamingos & Bulls, which they were shown along the way. Good day.
Free day today in Arles, very warm, most people walked into the City and then took a ride on the road train which found its way around the narrow streets and passed all the places of interest. Very nice place, clients all returned to hotel exhausted.
This morning was a nice drive through the countryside to Avignon, once again clients used the road train to see the city, then went to the attractions they wished to see. To finish the day it was a visit to the ‘Pont Du Gard’ a fitting end to a good day.
