EN: French and adventurer at heart, I travelled a lot (especially on the African continent) before settling in Nîmes. Passionate about history, I naturally fell in love with a region proud of its multiple identities (Roman, Camargue, Spanish...) and with Nîmes, which is called French Rome. It is with pleasure that I will help you discover this city, dynamic, anchored in its territory, and much more than an ordinary museum city! FR: Français et aventurier dans l'âme, j'ai beaucoup voyagé (notamment sur le continent africain) avant de poser mes valises à Nîmes. Passionné d'histoire, je suis naturellement tombé amoureux d'une région fière de ses multiples identités (romaine, camarguaise, espagnole...) et de Nîmes qu'on appelle la Rome française. C'est avec plaisir que je vous ferai découvrir cette ville, dynamique, ancrée dans son territoire et bien plus qu'une ville-musée ordinaire !

Tour description


⭐Exclusive guided tour ⭐ Nîmes the French Rome, between tradition and modernity
In love with the city of Nîmes, I propose you a 2H walking tour to discover the most emblematic monuments of the French Rome. Between tradition and modernity, embark on the discovery of a city proud of its two thousand year old heritage:

👉 Marvel at the Roman amphitheater is still in use today. 
👉 Stroll around the Maison Carrée, a UNESCO World Heritage candidate for the 2023 session. 
👉 Observe the Tour Magne, a rare vestige of a Gallic Nîmes overlooking the Jardins de la Fontaine, the cradle of life in the area.

In addition to this unavoidable triptych, you will discover the places that are dear to the people of Nîmes and that make it much more than a museum town: walking through the pedestrian streets of the city, discovering the secret squares that the locals love, sharing good addresses to discover the local specialities and the warm atmosphere of a city with a Hispanic flavour...

💲INFO PRATIQUE 💲The Walking Tour is based on a hat payment. Give what you want 😊

Bastien's tour was excellent and his explanation of symbols and architecture was fascinating. Also really appreciated his secret locations and the mix of ancient and modern. I would highly recommend a walking tour with Bastien.

Despite me being the only client, Bastian went ahead with the tour which was excellent. He is an engaging, intelligent guide who clearly enjoys sharing his knowledge. He is patient and as I am learning French he was kind enough to speak slowly and explain in English when necessary. The tour included a wide range of places of interest, both historic and contemporary. Bastien’s, lively but gentle manner really brought the beautiful city of Nimes alive for me. I heartily recommend this tour.

This Tour of Nimes gives you a great insight of the city. It covers the main attractions and even more, like places you wouldnt have thought of visiting. Bastien is knowledgeable about Nîmes which made this tour as informative as entertaining, I highly recommend!
