The legacy of the Roman Empire in this region is still very much present in Nîmes, Pont du Gard and Uzès. Follow all the traces of antiquity with this Provence Roman History Tour.
Provence Roman History Tour
We'll pick you up at 8:30 am at 41 Cours Jean Jaurès in Avignon. After an hour we'll arrive in Nîmes, one of the most outstanding cities of Roman origin in Provence.
The most important Roman monument in the city is the Arenas de Nîmes amphitheatre. We'll provide you with an audio guide in English so that you can explore on your own. Just like the Coliseum in Rome, gladiator competitions were held in its central circle, and today it is one of the most popular bullrings in France!
When you finish your visit, we'll stop briefly in front of another famous monument in Nîmes, the Maison Carrée temple. The tour will continue on to Uzès, where you'll have the opportunity to wander around the Provencal village of Roman origin. We suggest visiting the charming Place aux Herbes and the Tour Fenestrelle, the Romanesque bell tower within the Saint-Théodorit cathedral.
The last stop on the tour is Pont du Gard, one of the best preserved Roman aqueducts in Provence. After taking photos of its famous arches, you'll have free time to visit the Pont du Gard Museum. Here you'll discover some interesting facts about the engineering works that the Romans built thousands of years ago.
From Pont du Gard we'll return to Avignon, and arrive at the starting point at 2 pm.
The Arenes de Nimes Roman Amphitheatre may be closed to the public due to bull runs and other events.
