Visit a treasure trove of Roman sites on this tour to Nimes and Uzès. Before making your way to the remarkable Pont du Gard aqueduct, enjoy exploring the amphitheater of Nimes—which rivals the Colosseum in style and size—and the town of Uzès, with its impressive collection of Roman architecture.
Weave your way through the pride of Nimes, the incredible Roman temple Maison Carrée. Marvel at the town’s amphitheater—in its heyday it held more than 20,000 spectators. Still used today, it is far better preserved than many of its counterparts.
Continue to Uzès, a town bubbling with southern charm and an impressive architectural legacy from its time as the first duchy of France. Wander along the narrow cobblestone streets past the palace, the Fenestrelle Tower, and the epicenter of town life at the Place aux Herbes.
Complete your fascinating day with a visit to the nearby Pont du Gard aqueduct, which has survived almost 2 millennia and stands as an iconic symbol of the feats of Roman engineering.
