Impressive

We loved the trip, it was exiting to see these old buildings, and our guide was very well informed, nice and gave us very good tips on where to go when we had free time:-) I would recommend this to anybody interested in Roman times and impressive buildings. We choose it for Pont du Gard, but Usez and Nimes have made just as much an impression on us.
