Pont du Gard

Highly recommended
The Gard bridge, a marvel of Antique engineering built in the 1C, stands in a superb site. It was part of a 50km/31mi-long aqueduct built to bring spring water from Uzès to Nîmes. The structure is strangely delicate, despite being built from colossal 6t-8t blocks of masonry raised up to over 40m/131ft in height to form three levels of recessed arches. The well-worn stonework is reflected against a backdrop of green hills and the waters of the Gardon, which further enhances and adds to the beauty of this site.

Le Panier, a stroll through the old Marseille

Built on the site of the ancient Greek Massalia, the Panier is a typically Mediterranean district with colour-washed facades. The historic refuge of seafarers and generations of immigrants, the Panier is a peaceful haven, still working-class.
