Cities to visit in the Gard

A land of nature and history, the Gard is full of exceptional tourist sites to discover, cultural events to participate in and activities to enjoy. With its rich and well-preserved monuments, from the arena and aqueduct to the famous Maison Carrée, Nîmes bears witness to the way in which the Gard region has been shaped by the Roman era. Learn more on a discovery tour.

The Pont du Gard site, a must-see, is home to an interpretation centre dedicated to Roman antiquity. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as is the Abbey of Saint-Gilles. Among the natural jewels of the Gard are landscapes as varied as those of the Camargue, the Cirque de Navacelles and the Gardon Gorges.

Cities labeled “most beautiful villages of France”, villages of character and “cities of art and history” are also not to be missed during your stay in the Gard: Montclus, Lussan, Uzès, Beaucaire, Barjac or Vézénobres for example.
