We spent a weekend in Nîmes in July as you probably saw on Instagram. We stayed 4 days in a AirBnb but it was a little bit too much for what’s to visit in here, 3 days would have been perfect. Here are some of the main things to see. For things to eat, please see my post here.
Roman architecture is a very important part of Nîmes so you HAVE to visit the 3 monuments using the 12€ pass. You have access to the Magne tower, la maison carré and the arenas.
Before (or after) visiting la tour Magne, take time to visit the garden of the fountain. It is a beautiful garden, you can access the Diane’s temple freely.
The city center is absolutely gorgeous and car-free so it is really nice to walk there. Look up and find all the bulls hidden (or not so hidden) in the decor.
There are a lot of beautiful littles places in Nîmes, wander and see for yourself. I really love the place du chapitre, it is gorgeous and calm, awesome place to rest your feet.
The train station is also magic. The tourists office is on the Esplanade Charles de Gaulle, get there to grab a map of the city.
We spent an afternoon at the pont du gard. It was wonderful, really jaw-dropping. You can visit the bridge but also museums, exhibitions and there is a PERFECT place for kids. It is huge, tons of activities for them and also informative for the parents. You’ll love it and I highly recommend it.
Take your swimsuits and go for a little swim!
