  • This is a favourite walk you can access it at several places so it can be a longer or shorter walk. The aqueduct has historical importance , its quite imposing to look at and the exercise is good 
  • For us, probably the coolest place! Nimes aqueduct, next to the beautiful 4 km path among high vegetation. Cool place for walks.

  • Here we are often passed by and still eventually stopped because we actually found a handsome bridge. I unfortunately don't know history or construction but for us it was impressive.
