Nîmes: Attractions and more...



Les Arenes was built to host gladiator shows and chariot races; it even served as a fortress and then housed a church and some houses. Today, it is the venue for bullfighting shows and is the best preserved example of a Roman-styled amphitheatre.

Le Maison Carees, a rectangular Greek-styled structure, was originally a temple but now displays a range of Roman sculptures. Le Tour Magne, the city’s oldest Roman structure, is a 92-ft tall octagonal tower and gives a panoramic view of Nimes.

The Jardin de la Fontaine has been built around an ancient Roman shrine. It has well laid out tree-lined paths, decorative pottery and a maze of grottoes and canals. The ruins of the temple of Diane and Roman baths are also found here.

The Nimes Pentecost Festival is a 5-day carnival held in June; bullfights and bull runs, street concerts and flamenco performances are held all over the city.
