On this day we traveled to the beautiful town on the Sorgue River, Fontaine-deVaucluse. The water here was an amazing emerald green like nothing I’ve ever seen. There were beautiful views from every angle.  After this, we traveled to visit the Roman marvel of engineering, The Pont du Gard. Built around 50 A.D. by the Romans who needed a way to bring water to nearby Nimes, it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We had the priviledge of going inside and traveling to the very top. Something you need to book 2 years in advance.
