I booked tickets for the Choregies d'Orange opera in August. What the heck--we're not opera buffs, but the experience of seeing a live opera in the amphitheatre in Orange was just too appealing, so we went ahead and did it. Expensive, but got tickets in the heavens, so not too bad!
We're staying in Vendargues, in between Nimes and Montpellier, and the opera doesn't start till 9:30 on Aug. 4th, so we'll want to do some site-seeing/visiting other towns/places in the environs that day. I'd very much appreciate any input/suggestions. I have towns/things grouped together already, but thought I'd get some good advice from some France/Provence 'experts'.
Thanks so much. Barbara
