The Gard stretches from Montpellier to Marseille (the city is intuitively part of the Côte d ´Azur – thus we described it there). When you drive away from the coast you enter an enchanting and varied landscape. The remains of the Roman era are often well preserved and restored.
Towns like Uzès with a famous cathedral and an ancient and very charming towncenter: stroll through the streets with boutiques and terraces, or the weekly market; it is a real treat.
Nearby you will find the Pont du Gard: an aqueduct of no less than 40km that wasbuilt in the first century. It ran from Uzes to Nimes. It is an impressive example ofbridge engineering and very photogenic. During the summer months you can take a dip in the river and admire the aqueduct from the water.
