A trip to visit the Pont du Gard isn’t complete without stopping in nearby Arles. It’s a lovely city which was once sat on the sea but over the centuries lost that as their port filled up with silt from the Rhone River. The Romans made this their Provence capitol and it’s too bad more doesn’t remain from their time here but what there is is great.
During festivals there are wonderful costumes worn, especially the women, with long dresses, shawls and interesting head wear. These wall hangings give you an idea of what they look like. I went to the festival once and it was fabulous.
