HIGHLIGHTS

 

The Amphitheatre

The majestic arena of Nîmes is one of the best-preserved Roman remains in the world.

Built during the first century AD, this amphitheatre hosted many events, like gladiator combats or wild animals hunts. Nowadays it hosts other types of events, like symposia, concerts and sports events, all in an exceptional setting.

The Maison Carrée

As part of the Roman Forum, the Maison Carrée (or square house) was built at the beginning of our era as tribute to Gaius Caesar and Lucius Caesar. This building’s construction was inspired by the Temple of Apollo and the Temple of Mars in Rome.

Since 1823, this masterpiece has been home to Nîmes’s first museum. The monument has been refurbished on many occasions to give new life to this historic "house".

Jardins de la Fontaine

Created in the 18th century by Jacques-Philippe Mareschal, the Jardins de la Fontaine rank among the most important public gardens in Europe.

Nowadays, these lovely gardens are a favourite spot for Nîmes locals to go out for a stroll.
