les arenes under renovation

Here it is! The amphitheatre, or Les Arènes as it’s called in French. Built by the Romans, it has stood here in the heart of Nîmes for about 2000 years. And now it’s going to get the original colour back. First part was finished last summer, and now the next part is been cleaned. They won’t cover the whole amphitheatre at one time, after all, it’s what the tourists come to see.
