While the are many things to do in the Camargue wilds, we have markers on the map for a museum, the Musée Camarguais, which you should visit first on your way from Arles, since it will give you the information you need to understand all the historic changes in this interesting land. Then there's the hot place to eat in Le Sambuc, a Michelin starred restaurant inside a sheep fold called La Chassagnette. Then there's the Parc Ornithologique de Pond de Gau, the bird park where you'll see the Camague's famed Flamingos.

And of course, there are the Roman ruins in the art city of Arles that shouldn't be missed.

You can best see the Camargue on horseback. Look for "promenade à cheval."
