“Visit the Maison Carrée for a fantastic historical/reenactment film that describes the origins of Nimes.”
“This is a magnificent garden, which was part of the original Nîmes, as it houses natural springs. Now, it is a lovely spot for a stroll or a jog and if you continue to climb up the hill, you will find the Tour de Magne which was part of the ancient city walls and defence, and now gives a fantastic view of the city and its surrounds. ”
“Le + son espace restauration très accessible et sa fraîcheur Le + les prix très accessible ”
“The spectacular Pont du Gard is an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge built in the first century AD to carry water to the Roman colony of Nemausus. It crosses the Gardon River near the town of Vers-Pont-du-Gard. The Pont du Gard is the highest of all Roman aqueduct bridges, and one of the best preserved. Definitely worth a visit. ”
