Arena of Nîmes

Arena of Nîmes


Step back in time at the Arènes de Nîmes and you will be transported back to Roman times when you step into its preserved amphitheatre, built around AD 70.

Nîmes amphitheatre is a wonderful place to visit and recommended is the audio tour to get the most out of the visit and to learn more about the arena's gory and fascinating past.

Nîmes amphitheatre at 133m x 101m, consists of 34 rows of seating with a capacity of 24,000 spectators.

The Nîmes arena holds events throughout the year. There is an international music festival held with concerts in the Roman amphitheatre every summer featuring world famous bands and artists.

The Great Roman Games (Grands jeux romains) are not to be missed. During April and May the 'Roman Games' are recreated in spectacular style by more than 500 participants in full Roman costume.
