General Impressions of Nimes, day and night

We were in the south of France, in a city called Nimes. To our surprise, the city was very green with lots of parks. Getting rid of our car at the main train station was not easy. From the Adagio hotel, we could walk into town. Nimes has few nice buildings and is mainly known for its roman history. The Arena of Nimes is the most impressive. We took a night shot of the former gladiator pit.

We waren in het zuiden van Frankrijk in een stad genaamd Nimes. Tot onze verrassing was het hier zeer groen, met vele parken. Onze auto kwijt geraken was echter geen eenvoudige taak. Van het Adagio hotel, waar we logeerden, konden we gemakkelijk de stad in wandelen. Nimes heeft enkele mooie gebouwen en staat gekend voor zijn Romeinse geschiedenis. De Arena van Nimes is het meest indrukwekkende. ’s Nachts namen we nog een foto van deze gladiatoren put.

  1. Looks like both old and new. My favorites are the tree lined street, and the church spire.
