“This spectacular arena, way better preserved than the Coliseum in Rome,is well worth a special trip.”
I was amazed at how well-preserved this Roman -era arena is, compared to the much more popular and better-known Coliseum in 'Rome. I was also imoressed by how lovingly and meticulously this site is being restored. Despite the temporary flooring, it 's not hard to imagine how the Arena was used over the centuiries, thanx to an audio track available free to every visitor. a painless way to learn- or refresh the memory-- about the great reach of Roman civilzation. A painless way to learn history !!
You may find several groups of schoolchildren for the same reason. iI you have the time and interest, it's worth buying a "Combopack" of entrees into Roman sites in Nimes and Orange at a reduced price.The sites definitely desere more tourists than there are at present.
