Nîmes notes

a picture diary from a Roman town in the south of France


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.
