The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Nimes is a charming Roman city oozing sophistication, beauty and culture.

You will love the tiny, twisting pedestrian streets filled with boutiques eager to be discovered, the cafés piled onto pavements, the shady squares pulsing with restaurants hidden around each corner and the dramatic fountains which dispel the summer heat.

Remarkably preserved Roman buildings amaze at every turn. Indulge yourself, sitting in the shade, with a glass of chilled rosé in hand, gazing in awe at Les Arènes, one of the best preserved Roman amphitheaters in the world. Relax and gaze at the beautiful Maison Carré while devouring ice-cream in an adjacent café. Enjoy strolling along the impressive Rue Jean Juares, exploring the magnificent Jardin de la Fontaine.

Take in the music of the city. The vibe, the elegance, the way of life……..
