The center of Nimes The place where the romans tapped the fresh water spring which allowed the development of the city in the days of Emperor Augustus. Long before the building of the acqueduc via "le pont du Gard". Today, beautiful water canals and gardens in the middle of the city, and still there the roman buildind "temple de Diane".

It must be simply amazing come spring time. While we visited in December, the sights were still spectacular. Take your time walking through on your way up to the tower.

Nimes is a very small town but it is well preserved and has many things to see and enjoy by walk. All of them Roman historic sites.

A beautiful park with flowing water through it and hundreds of fish. The park also contains the Temple of Diana and the Tour Magne.

Absolutely beautiful gardens. We have walked from Tour Magne down to the Temple of Diane which is part of the gardens. We were quite lucky that the weather was great. It is a great day out.

This was just a lovely place to walk around. The running water was so peaceful and the statues are interesting. Great place to visit and walk around, could be very romantic.

Great gardens with well laid out paths and display areas. Difficult access for disabled, but possible. The roman ruins (temple and tower) and fabulous and well incorporated into the design

The gardens are on a hillside and as you walk up the hill the type of garden and vegetation changes. The park is very community oriented with lots of children and dog walkers. The Roman Tower is at the top of the park with the Temple of Diana at the bottom.
