Information

Nimes

The 2,000-year-old Roman amphitheatres at Arles, Nîmes and Orange still echo with thundering hooves and desperate cries, when summer bullfights draw enormous crowds to these former gladiatorial arenas. Nîmes is home to France's top bullfighting school and each May hosts the Feria de Pentecôte series of bullfights, the best attended festival in Europe. In addition to the bulls, the arena at Nîmes is a summer venue for rock concerts and sporting events. Nearby, the ancient temple of the Maison Carrée (open daily) is a fine example of Roman architectural flair with its delicate Corinthian columns.
