Why didn't you like this iconic Provençal city, Minatu ku? And are these pics of both Nîmes and Arles or just Arles? If so, which are of which? And you went to these cities and didn't take at least one pic of their Roman amphitheatres/arenas??? I know monuments are not your thing but its not every city in France or the world for that matter that have vestiges from Roman times.

This is just Arles in the first post, I don't liked Arles because it was a tourist trap.
I didn't took pics of the Arles Arena unlike Nimes.
Everthing was about Van Gogh.

In the oposite, even if it was a holiday (most shops was closed). I enjoyed Nimes, it was a real city with major tourist places.
Unlike Arles, for Nimes it was not the shame to show the reality of city, so a multicultural and modern city.

I will post Nimes pics later.

Call me conservative but I really don't like what Foster made in Nîmes. It replaced the old burnt theatre :

Great pics by the way. It's great to see ordinary streets.

Great pictures. I love the diversity of French architecture, although I have to say I prefer regional variants over the Haussman Parisien style. My favourite country in Europe

I think Arles is somewhat overrated. I liked Nimes better when I visited the Provence some years ago.
Is the 'Carré' under renovation? I can only see a glimps on photo 18.

Lovely pictures, Minato ku. Sorry you didn't like Arles, but your photos turned out good!

I'll agree with the comment on Foster's project in Nîmes.
