Sightseeing
Nimes is a fascinating destination. As a city it is clean and well serviced in terms of transport and administration. It has a lively nightlife, excellent restaurants and the general attitude of locals is relaxed and friendly. In addition to the excellent quality of life, there is so much to discover - the history of this part of the South of France is rich with Roman history. In Nîmes and close by, there are a number of Roman monuments to visit. Arles, Uzès, Avignon, Montpellier. All these towns/cities are less than an hour away by car or train and are full of history.
Visit the Maison Carrée for a fantastic historical/reenactment film that describes the origins of Nimes.

Parks & Nature
A beautiful garden for relaxation, a jog or to climb to the top of the Tour de Magne for a fantastic view.
This is a magnificent garden, which was part of the original Nîmes, as it houses natural springs. Now, it is a lovely spot for a stroll or a jog and if you continue to climb up the hill, you will find the Tour de Magne which was part of the ancient city walls and defence, and now gives a fantastic view of the city and its surrounds.

Getting Around
We often come to Nîmes from Paris by train and then rent a car from Hertz. There is an agency just behind the Nîmes train station. If you rent for 3 days, the price is often quite attractive. Otherwise, Nîmes is very well-serviced by the train and bus network. In summer, the train from Nimes to le Grau du roi (the closest beach) is 1€ and takes 50 mins. Trains run to Avignon, Arles, Montpellier, even Spain on a regular basis. The bus station behind the train station is where you can find a bus for Pont du Gard or Uzès. Relatively cheap and easy to navigate with the timetables available.
