Loved the Papal Palace at Avignon. It was full of Gothic arches and vaulting and I felt immediately at home (oh Durham cathedral, I do miss you). And then we went to Arles and wandered through a sleepy French town with a nice little collection of ruins and at the end of a street we turned a corner and there was the biggest amphitheatre I have ever seen in my life. Okay, not quite sure how it compares sizewise to the Colosseum, but it is very big and very impressive. Currently it’s a bullfighting ring. I really don’t have the pics to do it justice.
