Camargue horses in France
Day 5

Roman ruins and horse riding in the Camargue

Give the captain and crew a day off, and hire a car or taxi for the day. In the morning drive inland to Nimes and take a look at the astonishing Roman amphitheatre, the fabulous Maison Carree (probably the best preserved Roman temple anywhere in the world) and the incredible Pont du Gard, a perfectly-preserved three-tier Roman aqueduct.

Carry on to Arles, where you will find another spectacular Roman amphitheatre, and where you also find plenty of excellent places for lunch.

After lunch, join up with your guided tour of the Camargue on horseback (there are several companies that specialise in these horseback tours, but you should book well in advance). You do not necessarily have to be an experienced rider, and most of these companies cater for all ages and all levels of experience.

But there is nothing more magical than riding through the Camargue in the late afternoon sun, getting a feel for this wild and beautiful place. Back at the yacht the chef will have had all day to prepare something truly spectacular for dinner.
