Praised by renowned French novelist Andre Gide, Uzes is as inviting as the mouth-watering cuisine that graces the tables in its restaurants; it's a place of fascinating museums, quaint old buildings, pleasant grape and olive farms, fine Uzes hotels and inns, and a colorful market. Unlike some of its neighbours, picturesque town features a wonderfully authentic atmosphere. It is located 32 kilometres north of Nîmes.
Near the town lies one of its best-known attractions, the majestic Pont du Gard, an aqueduct constructed by Romans in AD 60 to keep Nimes supplied with fresh water. Uzes' list of attractions also includes the charming Duché d'Uzès, a 17th century chapel that is basically a glorified mausoleum, built to house the remains of several dukes. It stands on the former site of a first century AD temple that was dedicated to the Roman Emperor Augustus. Three ancient towers cleave skies over the city; the Royal Tower, the Bishop Tower and the Bermonde Tower. Gawk at them until you get a crick in your neck.
Apart from the obligatory fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and beef, the popular local market also proffers olives, olive oil by the jug or bottle, beautiful crockery, environmentally-friendly straw bags and home-made fabric in different colours.
The charming town is off the highway that connects Nimes with Orange. From your accommodation in Uzes, get to its top attractions by taxi, rental car, bus, or on foot.
