Nimes Private Walking Tour


Located between the sea and the Cevennes hills, Nîmes is one of the most attractive towns in Mediterranean France. During its more than two thousand years Nimes has forged a rich and diverse cultural and architectural heritage. Its history can be read in its monuments.

We will explore large collection of Roman monuments well preserved in Nimes: starting from the famous Arena of Nîmes, a Roman amphitheater where the Féria of Nîmes takes place, and the Maison Carrée, a roman temple extremely well preserved, Tour Magne and Diane's Temple.

Apart from its Roman remains, Nimes is worth visiting for its attractive gardens and outstanding modern architecture by Norman Foster, Jean Nouvel and Philippe Stark.

We will walk through charming streets of Medieval city centre with cute local boutiques, gastronomic shops and lively terraces.

A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent guide with firsthand knowledge of the region and culture. Well-times tour of Arles to understand VanGogh's work throughout the city and its influence on his art; a major motion picture was just released in Dec 2018.
