The city of Nimes France




The city of Nimes is in the Languedoc - Roussillon region of France.We spent a couple of days in the city as a stop over to break our journey from Calais to Cannes.It is about 150 miles from Nimes to Cannes

This was the centre of Roman France examples can be seen all over the area. The town has one of the best Roman amphitheatres which could seat 24,000 people.

There is a Roman temple La Maison Carees which is now a museum, It has a collection of Roman sculptures the temple was built in the 1st century.

Also a must see is the Pont du Gard Roman aqueduct which brought water from the reservoir and distributed it throughout the town.A local Map of the city

Outside of the city you will see several vine yards. As well as wine there is clothing and textile manufacturing.

If you get tired of the old building there are plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants to visit.

There is a farmers market on a Tuesday and in the summer a craft and local products market is held on Thursday night
