Nimes or Arles?

by BlackIsis Online Now Mar 28, 2010 at 4:43 PM

Hi all, I will be in the south of France for a few days during May and am wondering whether to stay at Nimes or Arles? I have stayed at Arles before and loved it and would like to go back, but Nimes looks good too. I will just be wandering around the Roman remains, shops, restaurants, markets, streets etc.
Nimes seems to be more focussed on bullfighting, from what I have discovered so far. Are there any major differences? Anybody been to both and have a strong preference?
I will have my own car and staying in the city centre so assume crime rate/driving exactly the same in both places.
So if anyone lives in the area or has spent time in both places it would be nice to have your thoughts.
