A short stop off with time to wander around the old town and some visited the arena. This is more complete than the colleseum in Rome but smaller.
Located between the sea and the Cevennes hills, Nîmes is one of the most attractive towns in Mediterranean France. The city was established by the Romans, on the edge of the Mediterranean plain, some twenty-five miles inland from the sea; and to this day, Nimes hasthe finest collection of Roman remains in France. Apart from its Roman remains, Nimes is worth visiting for its attractive old town and its gardens.
