Description

Set between the beautiful countryside and verdant vineyards of Languedoc-Roussillon and the iconic lavender fields of Provence is the charming town of Nimes. Famed for its gastronomy, festivals, good climate and quality of life, Nimes exudes history and Mediterranean charm and is a fantastic base from which to explore the highlights of this spectacular region. Its roots in the Roman Empire can still be seen in the spectacular Roman amphitheatre in Les Arènes, which plays host to the Languedoc bullfighting traditions and inspired Ernest Hemingway’s frequent visits to the city. Explore the Provençal gems of Avignon and Orange on included excursions, with the option of a wine tasting at the renowned Châteauneuf-du-Pape and a visit to the famous 13th century fortress port of Aigues-Mortes which rests on the stunning flat salt pans of the Camargue.
