The favorable city deserves that attention before winning the surrounding countryside. Stroll in the neighborhood of Arugula or visit the Museon Arles can mark a good starting point. Then roads progressed through the Camargue landscapes with its rice fields, marshes marshes and canals. Delta solar and wild, the Camargue has been shaped by the encounter of two giants, the Mediterranean and the Rhône. Étang de Vaccarès in the marshes of Romieu, the road leads to Salin-de-Giraud. The city was built to accommodate the workers of the exploitation of salt. The city is adjacent to grey salt dunes, the slides and the cars. This route then leads on the beaches of Piemanson, where lurks another vast universe. Then return to Arles will occur along the Grand Rhone.
