It's not so easy to locate this huge, ruined Roman amphitheater in Saintes, France. But it's well worth the effort. You can climb all around it and even walk out into the middle of it. No crowds and no fake gladiators to spoil the mood!  There's also a Roman arch and a bridge in the town. And here's how nice the people are: we stopped to ask directions of a man on a bicycle, and he had us drive behind him while he biked quite a distance to show us the way there.
