    The Carrieres des lumieres is unique. I couldnt imagine such a thing. I cannot wait to see their next exhibition. Arles is a charming and authentic city. Les Baux was a little bit overcrowded so preferred having a wine tasting down the village. Thanks to Roman our guide. He emphasizes what you expect from a professional tour guide.
