Nimes is an amazing town full of history and just in the right place to make day trips out to all major surrounding attractions. The arenes is the best kept of its kind left in Europe. There are plenty of good eateries and public transport connections are second to none

We arrived during a festival so the town was alive. We enjoyed our stroll through the streets and the party atmosphere. Overall a cute, welcoming town that was enjoyable for a few days if you add in the several worthwhile day trips available to other nearby locations.

A fascinating city, although we were there at a festival time so the arena and carriere were closed. Nonetheless we enjoyed the city.

Everywhere was so clean loved that it is so easy to walk anywhere. The people are friendly and welcoming cannot speak more highly of Nimes. I am Coeliac but the restaurants did their best to accommodate me with meals.

The impressive arena and Maison Carrer were the two places we visited. The big surprise was the lovely shopping and clean streets.

We loved the architecture and layout of the city; it is beautiful and charming. The small squares and quaint shops and restaurants was very appealing.

Stay in the center town near Les Arenes or La maison Carré.Walk through Les Jardins de La Fontaine and wander around Les halles in the old streets.

La Piazzetta, delicious italian with all fresh ingredients! You may have to wait at the bar for a place, or better to reserve a table

There are signs everywhere in English and French in the monuments making them very accessible
