Description

Let the games begin!

Visitors may not be aware that upon entering the Nîmes arena, they will be standing in a perfect site. It is no exaggeration to say that the Nimes arena illustrates the degree of perfection attained by Roman engineers in the first century after Christ.

The amphitheatre is oval-shaped and perfectly symmetrical. The complex architecture features magnificent bas-reliefs and sculptures, comparable to the Coliseum in Rome.

But far from being left as a charming ruin, the tradition of entertainment lives on in the Nîmes arenas.

Once, 24,000 spectators revelled at the sight of the bloody gladiatorial combats, now the people of the Nîmes and visitors, can enjoy the numerous bullfights and Camargue races held at the site.

Not to mention the many concerts featuring major French and international stars that thrill the crowds, much like in the heyday of the Nîme Arena!
