Camping l’Olivier ***


Nîmes and its arenas

At 20-30 minutes by car from the Olivier campsite, you can discover Nîmes, its famous bullring, its bulls and its férias!

Surrounded by nature and bathed in the southern sun, Nîmes offers an exceptional quality of life. Terraces, squares, gardens, fountains, but also its restaurants and cafés are all assets that make Nîmes unique.

The city is both a living museum of Romanity and a cultural, dynamic and warm city.

The Roman monuments, by their majesty and their exceptional conservation, contribute amply to forge the identity of Nîmes. Built 2,000 years ago, the Maison Carrée, the arenas, the castellum divisorium and the remains of the Roman walls are the pride of the people of Nîmes. Nîmes has also been labeled a City of Art and History, and is working on the design of a future great Museum of Romanesque Art.

In the 1980s, the city called on several internationally renowned architects: Sir Norman Foster for the development of Carré d’Art, a contemporary art museum and library; Jean Nouvel for Némausus, an avant-garde social housing building; Jean-Michel Wilmotte for the renovations of, among others, the Theater and the Halles, and most recently, the designer of Allées Jaurès.

Nîmes is also contemporary through the rich cultural life that unfolds throughout the year. The different stages host internationally renowned artists, daring theatrical creations, and great shows to see with the whole family.
As for the ferias, which mix local traditions and current music, they are highlights of the Nîmes agenda; people come from far, even from very far away to experience these intense days and nights.
