Nimes is the gateway to the south of France. A city of Roman ruins, cobbled streets, and modern art, it’s a fascinating blend of cultures. Start your exploration at the Maison Carrée, the most intact of the ancient Roman temples. Then take a stroll around the old town, with its colorful streets of cafes and boutiques and the impressive Arena of Nimes, the best-preserved Roman amphitheater in the world. Don’t miss the Carré d’Art, a modern art museum, or the Musée des Beaux-Arts, a fine art gallery with works from the 16th century to the present day. With its sunny climate and relaxed vibe, Nimes is the perfect base for exploring Provence.
