Premiere Classe Arles
Travel Blogs from Arles
Today we headed out of Avignon through the Provence country side south to the city of Les Baux to visit the historic area. It was a beautiful drive through endless round abouts, thank God for our navigation system.
On the return we drove through the small quaint town of St. Remy. There was minimal parking as a bull fight was about to begin.
... filtering back into our minds. We then drove onto Orange after George's recommendation. We found the enormous Ancient Theatre and took the self guided tour. This place dates back to 34BC and it was truly impressive. Just sitting in the arena gave you a feel of what it was like to listen to a show so many years ago. The way this audio tour was presented and the video footage was brilliant. It really gave you a good insight into what was known about the place and ...
... We finally were instructed by hotel staff at Auberge to enter the postal code, and finally we found our next destination in the navigation. Off we went...three hours later we arrived in Avignon.
Relaxing today...sights tomorrow. This hotel is beautiful. ...
Today we took a bus trip to "Pont du Guard", at a cost of €5.00 each including the enstrrance fee
The Pont du Gard is an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge that crosses the Gardon River in Vers-Pont-du-Gard near Remoulins, in the Gard département of southern France
The bridge has three tiers of arches, standing 48.8 m (160 ft) high
We enjoyed lunch by ...
... For dinner we had Pâté, Prawns, Cheeses, Prosciutto, Salami, a Salad, Baguette all washed down with a cold Beer.
After dinner we continued playing Scala ...
The lady at the front desk was very nice and chatty, and the few staff we crossed on our way to the room were friendly.
No elevator, but the stairs weren't hard to manage.
The room was very, very small, we could barely walk past the edge of the bed to get into the bathroom (like an airplane or a travel trailer bathroom).
A nice t.v. and free internet connection
Room was visibly old, burn marks on the walls and floor, graffiti on the headboards etc.
Sheets had a few spots and things on them, not too sure of what, but I was too tired to bother.
Slept terribly, the hotel is right next to the highway and the walls are thin so heard the neighbours all night
Would not recommend this hotel; though the price was only 48 euros and I guess you get what you pay for :)
