Well worth the walk to these natural springs which were clearly the reason for the first settlement here and why the Romans developed it. Worth taking a walk up to the tower for great views.

This is a very picturesque spot in the centres of Nimes. Lovely ponds, beautiful plants. The only thing missing on our visit was fountains. Perhaps it's my French.

Nice spot to head for in the heat. Good for people watching and the best views of the city. Easy to walk to and plenty of walking if you are feeling energetic.

This is a pleasant walk on a hot sunny day past refreshing water fountains and streams. The gardens are really nice, plus once you cross the gardens you will get to the Tour Magne!

Yes, it is totally free to walk all around the gardens and the Temple of Diana. Fairly pricey charge to go up the tower at the very top of the gardens, but the view is quite spectacular!
