Nîmes is located in the Languedoc Roussillon, near to the border with Provence, was an important outpost of the Roman Empire. The city`s culture is a splendid mixture of the two regions. It is famous for its influence in Roman times and possesses one of the best-preserved Roman amphitheaters the Arena of Nîmes, a double-tiered circa-70 A.D. amphitheater still in use for concerts and bullfights. Both the Maison Carrée white limestone Roman temple and Pont du Gard tri-level aqueduct are around 2,000 years old. The city has also a touch of Pamplona(Spain) in the festivals of the bullfights at the arena. At night, the bodegas are usually filled with students drinking sangría and listening to the sounds of flamenco.
