My Photos: France -- Nîmes

Southern France is dotted throughout with the remnants of Roman cities.  Nîmes, known in Roman times as Nemausus, is one of the most notable.  It is home to the best-preserved Roman amphitheater in the world, the only fully-preserved temple from Antiquity, the Maison Carrée, and a pre-Roman tower, the Tour Magne.
