We learned that this arena is the most in-tact Roman arena in the world. Obviously it is still in use. But we learned so much about the structure, the history of the Roman city, and the history of the games that were held here. Good...More

The main point of interest is the shell. Nothing to see in the arena floor. But the information signs in the corridors are plentiful and the close-up view of the construction techniques is impressive. Also there are good explanations of why the arena survived and...More

This ancient structure rising into the sky at the centre of Nîmes takes us back a thousand years. Impressive that it is used today for various performance events. I enjoyed wandering around the inside, up steps worn by centuries of feet. So well preserved.

Fairly well preserved coliseum, somewhat restored and repurposed. Amazing that it was built 2K years ago. But.... there are so many of the around, and what can you really do with another. The shoes they offer are mostly hype.

Would definitely recommend a visit, it was really interesting and worth the entry fee. We didn't do the audiovisual tour which was a shame as I think it would have given us a better understanding of the history.
