Location: If making way through south of france just catch train (near nice)
We went through the south of france and our favourites places were Nimes and Avignon. Nimes is definitely worth a visit with its beautiful statued garden (complete with roman ruins) leading up through winding paths to a tower where the whole area can be viewed for next to nothing as well as a lovely old arena similar to the one in verona. Beautiful place to even just get off train and check out for hour or two. Avignon is also lovely and the Palace of the Popes is spectacular (tour is ok but just the surrounding area is worth a peek).

You can also visit Pont du Gare near Avignon. Pont du gare is the ancient bridge in the Roman period to convey water toward the cities which is located near this bridge as Avignon or Nîmes. you can enjoy the panoramical view over the Rhône on this bridge(you can go up on this bridge!!!). Accessible from Avignon, Nîmes, Arles by bus. You also buy the ticket on the bus. It takes half day to visit Pont du Gare.
