The most beautiful attractions

Pont du Gard

The Pont du Gard is an impressive aqueduct bridge from Roman times. It was used to transport water from A to B, as the name suggests. Since there were no water channels underground in the past, an aqueduct was a suitable alternative. At that time, the Pont du Gard was a tiny part of a 50-kilometer-long water pipeline from Uzès to Nîmes. Today, with a height of 49 meters, the bridge is one of the most impressive structures in all of southern France.

Nîmes: Amphitheater and Jardin de la Fontaine

At the time of Roman rule, the intention was to build an amphitheater on a par with Rome's Colosseum. With 25,000 seats, it was not quite as large as its counterpart in Rome, but at least as impressive. It was once used for gladiator fights, later for bullfights and today for various events such as concerts or history plays. The Jardin de la Fontaine is a park of about 15 hectares with white marble sculptures, large ponds, botanical gardens and Roman ruins. The park was built in the 17th century and is located just west of Nîmes city center.

Gorges du Tarn

The Gorges du Tarn is a 35-kilometer-long gorge along the Tarn River. Part of the gorge is protected and in some places it is 400-500 meters deep. The mountain gorge was formed by erosion of the river over thousands of years. In the process, the river washed out entire caves and grottos. The gorge is also known for its overhanging and demanding climbing routes.

Cité of Carcassonne

Perhaps the name of the city of Carcassonne is already familiar to you. After all, there is even a board game about it. The Cité of Carcassonne is a medieval old town and sits somewhat elevated on a hill above the new buildings. The fortified city is surrounded by a double wall, each 3 kilometers long. At that time the city was secured with 52 watchtowers. In the past, up to 4000 people lived in this city, while today only 229 live in the city. However, the city is still a popular destination for tourists.

Montpellier

A city, which 10 kilometers far away from the Mediterranean coast to find forms the capital of Languedoc-Roussillon. The Antigone district is the heart of the city of Montpellier, a modern but chic area with a taste for classical music and art.

Lagrasse

Lagrasse is classified as one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France (Most Beautiful Villages in France). In the Occitan language, the word Lagrasse reveals a lot about its meaning. In fact, Grasse means fertile and refers to the surrounding land. Worth seeing are especially the abbey Sainte-Marie de Lagrasse and the old market hall.
