Yes there is a beyond Paris in France, and cities worth the detour, Nîmes is certainly one of them. Located in the Occitanie region in the South of France it’s not the hot city on the French glam city trail-map, it’s has a much more subdued but very elegant style though.
The first time I set foot in Nîmes I hardly knew anything about the city, the idea of living in the South of France in my early twenties was exciting enough wherever the city. I didn’t arrive on a hot summer day though, rather in the height of winter, the city was beaten by a heavy and bitterly cold wind, the unruly Mistral.
When I went back more than twenty years later the city had changed beyond recognition. Most of the city centre had been transformed in a pedestrian area, the wall of the elegant buildings along the train station darken by pollution had been pressure washed, were standing proud and imposing, in all their splendour in a pristine sandstone colour.
The main square had been rethought and redesigned to put all the emphasis on the Roman heritage of the city. I was taken aback, the city looked beautiful and the work done enhanced not only the city’s beauty but its incredible roman heritage and elegant buildings and this image is proof of how elegant this city has become. I bring you this elegant city directly into your home and let you wonder, to imagine yourself sitting at one of these cafés terrasses.
