History buffs won’t want to miss a visit to Nîmes whose origins date back to the 6th century BC. Many remains of the Roman era such as the amphitheater, the Maison Carrée or the Temple of Diana will be the opportunity to discover the ancient origins of this beautiful city. To understand the history of the medieval city in modern times, a detour to the old Nîmes museum is essential.
The main attraction of the city is its amphitheater, which since 1863, has been transformed into an arena. It hosts bullfights, Camargue races and many cultural events.
Located between the Mediterranean and the Cévennes mountains, the city is full of culinary specialties. Take the time to taste the famous salt cod brandade, tapenade or the small Nîmois pâté whose lid hides a delicious stuffing made from veal and pork.
