OVERNIGHT EXCURSION: ROMAN HERITAGE: DISCOVER THE GALLO-ROMAN WORLD FROM MONTPELLIER!*


From the Pont du Gard to the Maison Carrée

Set off for the Pont du Gard, the famous aqueduct inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. It supplied water to the ancient city of Nîmes, extending more than 50 kilometres in length. Its triple row of arches, length of 275 metres and height of 48 metres make it a truly extraordinary structure. Launch at Les Terrasses, across from the monument.

Continuing on towards Nîmes. Nîmes is synonymous with Roman life... The whole city is impregnated with it. Enter the best-preserved amphitheatre in the Roman world to get a sense of the ambiance at great matches, explore the Maison Carrée and follow your guide through the old neighbourhoods to gain an appreciation for the city. Other key sites include the Jardins de la Fontaine (one of the oldest public gardens in Europe, dating from the 18th century) and the Carré d’Art (library, multimedia library and contemporary art museum) built by Sir Norman Foster.
