Things to do in Languedoc-Roussillon
Maison-Carrée, in the city of Nîmes, is one of the best-preserved structures of the Roman Empire in Languedoc-Roussillon. The temple features a portico with Corinthian columns and would resemble a Greek structure were it not for its walled rear. Nîmes Arena is the oval Roman amphitheatre featuring two levels abounding with arches. Pont du Gard, located northeast of Nîmes and about 50m tall, is the tallest Roman bridge ever built. You can walk the top of the aqueduct and admire the surrounding area. Medieval citadel defines the skyline of the town of Carcassonne with its defensive walls and turrets. While touring the fortress, visit the St-Nazaire Basilica to admire its Romanesque and Gothic elements. Comtal Castle, the inner stronghold protected by five towers and a moat, is another top attraction of Carcassonne and Languedoc-Roussillon.
