Southern France for history lovers

France’s history is long and varied and Southern France offers myriad options to learn more about it. Avignon has a fascinating history, for instance.

Going back even further in time, Nimes Arena is one of the best preserved examples of a Roman amphitheatre that you’ll find anywhere in the world.
