In the footsteps of the romans_nr.2_full-day-trip

EXPERIENCE MILLENIAL HISTORY
PRESTIGIOUS HERITAGE = THE ROMAN SPIRIT

The “Narbonnaise” was the first Roman province on Gallic soil. To conquer it, a series of roads, including the “Via Domitia”, the oldest road in France, was built around 120 BC.

Let’s go to Nîmes, the majestic Roman city and capital of the Gard department. I offer a guided tour including the roman vestiges, the medieval town and the covered market (“les Halles”) where you can buy the best local food. After lunch, I recommend a visit to the new museum of Roman history (“Musée de la Romanité”) or of the arena (“Les Arènes”). Afterwards, we follow the footsteps of the Romans on the Via Domitia down to Beaucaire, a gallo-Roman and medieval city on the banks of the Rhone river. On the way back to our starting point, we stop at an exceptional wine estate with a little museum.

Accessibility

My tours are accessible to all: children, adults, seniors and people with handicapes*.

I don’t have seat belts in the back of my cars (vintage cars) so if you need a seat belt attachment or other hardware, it will be difficult. Let me know what you need.
