transport in Nimes

by rchitekt

How far are Tour Magne,Port Auguste,Port de France and Jardins de la Fontaine from the Nimes railway station. Can I see these places in 4 to 5 hours..

Are they in walking distance?? If not, is there a local bus which will take me to those places? If I get a taxi, how much would be the fare to the farthest point?

If you look at Google Maps you can work out your best walking itinerary from the railway station. I would proceed up the tree lined Avenue Feucheres to the Arena and then continue on the other side of the Arena up Victor Hugo until Quai de la Fontaine then turn to the left side and you are at the Jardins et Quais de la Fontaine. Before you reach the turning make sure to visit - Maison Carree - one of the best preserved temples to be found anywhere in the territory of the former Roman Empire.

Allow around 30 minutes if not stopping to get from the railway station to the gardens. The Tour Magna is a few more minutes walk on the far side of the gardens.

4 or 5 hours will be good for exploring on foot.

Travel Tips for Nîmes

Les Baux de Provence

by cissou7

I am sure the name itself makes you dreaming...
Les Baux is one of the cutest place around Nimes. People has been living here for centuries.
In the Middle Age it was a very strategic place to warn and to get protected if the ennemy was attacking. Actually, you can see on the pictures that the view is very large.
When it is very sunny you can see the land till Aigues Mortes, another very beautiful place of Provence, or more exactly of Camargue... I think I have to make a special page for it, do not miss Aigues Mortes if you are around.

PONT DU GARD

by LoriPori

Standing 49 metres high, the PONT DU GARD was built by the Romans to supply the town of Nimes with water. Providing pure water for Nimes was also creating wealth and ensuring the well-being of the people of Nimes.
In the acconpanying photo, you get the idea of just how high the aquaduct really is. Those are people walking below (left foreground).

le Pont du Gard

by pollon

This bridge sits at Uzés and was the main element of the waterworks which ended at the Castellum Divisorium in Nîmes

It's 275 m long and 48 m high and made with blocks of local stone which weigh about six tons each!

Flamingos, bulls and ponies

by sourbugger

I can recommend a day trip to the natural (and National) park of the Camargue that lies to the south of Nimes.

You really need a car to get around this low lying area with its lakes, canals and tall reeds.

The Town of Saintes Maries de la Mer is worth a visit for two major reasons.

Firstly the Romanesque church provides a great view of the area from its rooftop and Secondly on the landside of the town stands a lake where you can get fairly close to seeing the famous flamingos.

In fact the animals are the main attraction of the area with wild pones about as well.

On the major roads (such as they are) you will find many places that breed the ponies and bulls as well. Most welcome visitors.

Le Jarden de la Fontaine

by PAULA56

Visited the garden Saturday afternoon and was very impressed with the beauty and cleanliness. Follow the steps up through the gardens to a monument with outstanding views over the town. Also an interesting ruin of a Roman temple to explore.
Several cars arrived bringing brides to have their pictures taken, seemed to arrive every 15 minutes. Romantic grotto seemed to be the place to be photographed....
Think there may have been fountains working in the summer months but worth seeing anyway.
Well worth a visit
