WHEN IN NÎMES . . .

On the Via Domitia
Here's looking up at a beautiful winter day's sky in Nîmes. Once a Roman colony, Nîmes is known as la Rome française, the most Italian of any city outside of Italy. Originally an important outpost of the Roman Empire in southern Gaul, this ancient city is the site of important vestiges, notably its amphitheatre, built around 70 A.D. The impressive two-tiered arena's façade has 30 arches, one of which is pictured above. Photograph contributed by Jennifer Michalsky

Expression
À Rome, fais comme les Romains.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do.


Hands On Reading!
Anyone at any age can boost his French proficiency by reading...and there is no better starting place than a fully-illustrated children's story, like our latest title, Le Lapin et le Roi Grenouille. It, and its English version, The Rabbit and King Frog, are available worldwide from Amazon.
