Anyone Been To Nimes Arena in France?

I'm traveling to Nimes France in July to see a concert. Can anyone tell me what I'm in store for, as well as the best way to travel from Paris, nice hotels (2-3 star) to stay in? Any info would be a great help!

It's a lovely city. Here's their website:

Take the TGV. Sorry, don't know any hotels, but you can look at them on the website.

hi

Take the TGV. You can walk from the station to the old arena.

The modern chain hotels are on the outskirts of town, Ville actif etc. But there are charming family run hotels around the arena and in the medieval city.

I guess its the old arena .... there is a new one too !

This arena was built around 0 AD or BC.
It holds about 25000 in summer, 14000 in winter (they have a detachable roof).
You can see a pic of the inside of it taken daytime in July here : http://tlp.netfirms.com/photo6.htm

My homepage has lots of info about the area.

Hi helrot! I think it will be very exciting to see a concert at the Nimes Arena. The center of Nimes is very compact and charming with small pedestrian streets, shops and cafes. To see other sites from Nimes you can catch a bus (at the bus station, right next to the train station) to Uzes, a nice, preserved medieval town. You can also catch a bus to Pont du Gard, a preserved Roman aqueduct. You can take the train to Avignon (less than 30 minutes) to visit the Papal Palace or eat in one of its many restaurants and/or Arles.
