Lovely stroll round this amazing building, interesting to see it being used as a music venue. Stunning at night and great photo opportunities.

My bought a combination ticket for Tour Magne, Maison Carre and the Arena from the tourist office the day we were visiting. We went to the Arena last (around 2:30pm) only to find out they had just closed due to a concert in the evening....More

The Arena is extremely well preserved and suited to any modern performance. Its acoustics are excellent and will make any concert even better. Definitely recommend!

Went to see the Scorpions live. So great experience in the 1900 years old building still standing and entertaining the crowd. The place is fantastic. Best conserved Roman arena in the world !

An amazing structure which exemplifies sensitive conservation. It wasn't always clear which areas were open and which weren't (some tapes were broken and some barriers moved) but overall a well put together attraction with an excellent audio guide.

Fantastic concert with London Grammar in this fantastic setting. Also from the outside it is a great place to visit.

From the outside the arena is splendid- especially the many cleaned up sections. But the inside is adversely affected by shows there- limited openings and lots of gear about. It's v family and 'let's make history exciting and gory2 Not too impressed!

Well worth a visit. Go inside rather than just walk round it. Amazing place. It's in the middle of everything so you can't miss it!

Nimes is well worth a visit and even the children really enjoyed the city. Very easy to get around and see everything. Arena is very impressive and interesting - if slightly "over preserved" by the restorations done over the years.

Didn`t see any lift/elevator so not really practical. You get a good view from outside (to be honest interior is nothing spectacular) and there are other places (parks etc) where you can take a pushchair.

No I would not advise taking a push chair. There are a large amount of steps which even able bodied people could find difficulty in managing. The only area that I can think of that a push chair could be used was the first... More
