The city of Nimes France




Located in the south of France, Nimes is a beautiful city with a rich history and a plethora of tourist attractions. Known as the "French Rome," Nimes was a major Roman city and many of its historic buildings and monuments still stand today. One of the city's most famous attractions is the Arena of Nimes, a Roman amphitheater that was built in the first century AD and is still used today for concerts and other events.

Nimes is a city that is well-known for its rich Roman history, and there is no better place to explore that than at the Musee de la Romanite. This museum is dedicated to showcasing the culture and history of the Roman Empire, and it is a must-visit attraction for anyone interested in ancient history.

The museum is located near the famous arena of Nimes, and it houses an impressive collection of Roman artifacts, including sculptures, pottery, and jewelry. Visitors can also admire the impressive mosaics and wall paintings that offer insights into the daily life of the Romans.

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
