What to Expect
Nimes, founded in the 1st century by the veterans of the Gallic Legion, is often referred to as the French Rome.
Visit its amphitheater and Maison Carrée, a small Roman temple on a 5.5-hour guided tour. These monuments rank among the best-preserved monuments of the Roman Empire.
Take a short drive through the Mediterranean scrubland or garrigue to the quaint medieval town of Uzes, the first duchy in France. You’ll have some free time here to wander around the picturesque town.
Afterwards you’ll visit the Pont du Gard, a Roman aqueduct built in the 1st century to provide water to the fountains and baths in Nimes.
