One of our favourite towns.  Again, Roman ruins abound – but, unlike in Nîmes, they have been absorbed into the fabric of the town.  For us the most impressive are the foundations of the main market square (the Cryptoporticus), place de la République, which can be accessed from Hôtel de Ville.  There is a bustling market on Saturday mornings.  Also – Vincent Van Gogh lived here during one of his most productive periods.  There is a Van Gogh walk you can do where you can recognise the settings of some of his most famous works: follow the link below.
