The best things to do in Nîmes

One of the most famous Nimes attractions which has given the city some fame is Maison Carree, the old but well-preserved Roman temple. This building dates from 5 AD and was dedicated to Gaius and Lucius Caesar. It's certainly one of the major things to see in Nimes. But besides the Maison Carree there are many other places to visit in Nimes. For example, the Amphitheatre, a great work from the first century, and the Temple of Diana, a beautiful and enigmatic building located in the shade of the Garden of La Fontaine. This garden is another one of the most spectacular attractions in Nîmes. Its majestic fountains and manicured gardens will leave you impressed.

There's lots of stuff to do in Nimes besides seeing these ancient monuments. A good starting point is the old town. You can start by strolling down Madaleine Street, the city's commercial artery, past Place l'Horloge and Place aux Herbes, along the streets of du Chapitre, l'Aspic, Bernis, and Market Square. There are tons of things to do in Nîmes, and visiting Place aux Herbes is one of them. It houses the Cathedral of Our Lady and St. Castor, which was originally Romanesque. In addition to seeing the city's many monuments, other Nîmes activities include sampling the local fare, like cod brandade, a creamy pasta with unsalted cod, oil, and milk.
