Uzès (Distance by car: about 10 minutes)
Uzès is a small town with about 8,500 inhabitants in the southern French Département Gard in the region Okzitanien and is situated on a limestone plateau of about 145 m height in a triangle formed by the cities Alès (32 km northwest), Avignon (40 km east) and Nîmes (25 km south).
Nîmes (Distance by car: about 45 minutes)
Nîmes, a city in the Occitan region of southern France, served as an important outpost of the Roman Empire. It is known for its well-preserved monuments, for example the Arènes de Nîmes, a two-storey amphitheatre dating from around 70 AD, which is still used today for concerts and bullfights. The white Roman limestone temple Maison Carrée is also around 2,000 years old.
Avignon (Distance by car: about 45 minutes)
Avignon, a city in the Provence in the southeast of France, is located at the Rhone. From 1309 to 1377 it was the seat of the Catholic Popes and remained under papal rule until it joined France in 1791. Testimony to this history is the massive papal palace, Palais des Papes, in the centre of the town, which is surrounded by a medieval wall.
Pont du Gard (Distance by car: about 20 minutes)
The Pont du Gard is a Roman aqueduct in the south of France on the territory of the commune of Vers-Pont-du-Gard in the Gard department. The bridge is of impressive height and represents one of the best preserved water channels from Roman times in France.
