Nîmes is very nice, you can spend a couple of days to visit the city. You should circle the countryside to visit the whole Rhône delta, Provence nearby, le Massif Central.

As mentioned in my France homepage, I chose Nîmes as my Rhône delta region anchor city. The region is located completly South of France.

It is a magnificent region, the weather is very clement, the people have hot temper too, the food is great with influence of Italy. The Roman populated the area and left hample number of ruins and sites to visit. I suggest that you play 'Connect the dots' with a couple of 'dots' on your itinerary, and drive at random trying to find them, and don't be afraid to sit down, have a glass of wine listening to the sicada (cigale).
