Nîmes in December

Until today, I have only been to Nîmes about 5 or 6 times. I’ve been to the train station a few times. I’ve also been shopping on the edge of town several times.

Today we drove to the center of town where the Roman arena is located. It is mostly intact and quite beautiful. We decided to start off on the Ferris wheel or the “grande roue”. I haven’t been on one since I was a young child. It was so much fun and wow what a view.

The Roman Museum is lovely. (Musée de la Romanité) It is quite new, spacious, well staffed and inexpensive. There is a helpful docent in every section. The people at the ticket desk give the children an activity booklet. It is a scavenger hunt. If they find all the answers they receive a prize in the museum’s gift shop.

We ran out of time and didn’t see all the things on our list. We decided on a quick lunch. Now we returning to the house but are stuck in mostly stop rather than go traffic.
