We had a day here and did the ramparts walk which was well worth doing. There are loads of eateries but the side streets are the best. We had superb oysters near the republic square.

We were staying with friends recently in Aigues Mortes and and biked it down to the Salins on the way into Le Grau-du-Roi. We considered riding the bikes around the site but decided instead to take the "train". This proved to be a wise decision...More
