Deluxe France & its own team of drivers & guides will lead you to the major Romans sites in Provence. Not to be missed during your stay in the South of France! Join the heart of Roman heritage in Provence: Arles, a lively town dating back to the 7th century BC. Its great Roman sites, the Arena and the Theater inspired by the colosseum in Rome which are integrated into modern buildings. The city has a charming old town where you can walk around the narrow streets. The Arena Roman monument dates back from Ancient Rome (90 AD), can hold 20,000 spectators who enjoyed chariot races and bloody hand to hand battle shows. Fun fact: in the Middle Ages, a real city was built inside the ramparts of the colosseum that was not until the 18th century that it was cleared to protect its status of historical monument. Nowadays it is used for concerts the Feria d'Arles and plays. Don't forget to visit the Alyscamps, the large Roman necropolis, one of the most famous of the Ancient World! Don't miss the 12 century Saint Trophime Church, a gem of the city! Van Gogh had here his most prolific artistic period.

Next, discover Nîmes, the Rome of France! It's a real trip back in time with reminders of the Roman Empire. The well preserved Amphitheater, the Maison Carré (Squared house), the only temple of ancient Rome entirely preserved and the Tour Magne, the most substantial surviving feature along the wall, rising today to 33 metres: a defensive structure and an expression of status and political power.
Contemplate the magnificent Uzège region and the beautiful Uzès town. A charming medieval bustling town with a protected historic center. Uzès is a bustling town, surrounded by vineyards and filled with excellent shopping streets. The pace of life is beautifully slow, and there's an unmistakable hint of the Mediterranean to the city.On Wednesdays and Saturdays, Uzès comes alive with the arrival of the market, which is the best place to buy truffles, Duche d'Uzès wines and especially olives. The Saturday market is cited as the most colorful and exciting in all of southern France.
One last stop will take you to the Pont du Gard, the largest Aqueduct of the Roman Empire still standing. An architectural gem that will definitely be one charling highlight of your trip!
