Nîmes seen from the top of the amphitheatre

view from arenesHere’s another view of Nîmes, seen from the top of the amphitheatre. There, where you now see a giant wall painting of the Spanish torero José Tomàs, will a few years later stand the new museum of Romanity. The work has just begun. Otherwise the views are of the nearby suburbs of Nîmes, a mixture of old, fairly low buildings and new and modern apartment buildings.

  1. it’s neat to see the old mixed with the new.

    • Yes, it’s so easy to forget the new buildings… yet they make the city together with the old. I was quite surprised myself seeing the city from this angle, normally we look towards the older (and prettier) quarters!
