This department is named after its river inciting the Romans to settle here and make Nimes the 'Rome of France'. It is also home to the Rhone delta with bulls quietly grazing on the marshy banks alongside pink flamingos searching for food.
Here you will find the delightful walled town of Aigues-Mortes, established by Louis IX as the point of departure for the Crusades.
Aigues-Mortes is a good base for discovering the surrounding Camargue and its fragile eco-system.
Enjoy the Gard's numerous sporting opportunities; canoeing in the Gorges du Gardon, horse riding in the oak forests or mountain biking following the route of the Roman aqueduct.
- Roman Vestiges - the Pont du Gard is a magnificent 2,000-year-old Roman aqueduct, the highest bridge the Romans ever made. Try swimming under the bridge for the best views!
- Les Arenes in Nimes - of the 70 surviving amphitheatres, the arena at Nimes is probably the best preserved. Weekly bullfights throughout the summer still pull in the crowds.
- Carre d'Art in Nimes - a'must see' in Nimes is the controversial modern art museum designed by British architect Norman Foster.
- Vergeze - discover the secrets to the production of Perrier spring water, which is still bottled at its source here.
