The Basics

Uzès is a popular day trip destination from both Avignon and Nîmes, and is often coupled with a visit to the Pont du Gard aqueduct; tours typically cover highlights such as the Ducal Palace, Uzès Cathedral, and the Medieval Garden. Held in the main square of Place aux Herbes, the bi-weekly markets are popular with both locals and travelers. If you’re traveling with kids, don’t miss a visit to the HARIBO museum, located just outside of the city.

A must for better understanding of Roman influence/impact in France, if not for the sheer awe-inspiring Pont du Gard aqueduct. We then joined the afternoon tour of Luberon area for wine and olive oil tasting. Guide had a great handle on the history and culture of the region.

Half Day Pont-du-Gard, Uzès, Nîmes Tour from Avignon
The guide, “Terry,” was knowledgeable and friendly and rearranged the tour to make the most of the unusually rainy weather. Also, he went out of his way to help us catch a bus after the tour.

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
This tour was very good for seeing a little of Nimes, Uzes and the Pont du Gard and was the only way we could have done it in the time.. We would have liked more time to explore Nimes ideally. The minivan was very clean and comfortable and the guide extremely knowledgeable - it was like a university education in the area's history! Guillaime was very personable and happy to answer all sorts of questions. We enjoyed the morning and would recommend the tour.

Roman Sites Small-Group Day Trip from Avignon, Including Nîmes and Uzès
We were very pleased with our guide and the tour itself. There was a group of 6 of us, all of whom had seen Pont du Gard, so the driver agreed to spend more time in Uzes which was a beautiful village.

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Our driver /guide was a great source of information. We expected to see the Roman sites but she also pointed out many other places of interest en route. The car we travelled in was clean and comfortable. There were only 3 of us on the trip and we never felt rushed. We did have to pay an extra 5 euros to get into Pont du Gard. I would recommend the firm and the tour.

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Guillaume was our guide and driver and was extremely knowledgeable about French history and kept us informed and amused throughout the trip. Good amount of times at the Pont du Gard, but could have done with more time in Nimes to see more of the arena. Uzes was also interesting and gave us taste of the area.

Roman Sites Small-Group Day Trip from Avignon, Including Nîmes and Uzès
I love bike tours. Try to do one in every city I visit. This was so fun and educational. Our guide was safety minded and yet fun and informative. The South had such a shameful yet colorful history, it helps to understand why people thought the way they did back then and why things are built as they were. Sara knew all the tidbits, sharing them at the generous number of stops and points of interest. Would do it again as I'm sure we missed something.

We felt safe with our driver/guide Caroline. She communicated throughout the tour about the sites we were to visit in preparation for our free time at the stops. We also learned about the surrounding areas as we travelled through this region. A pleasant and informative tour which we enjoyed.

Roman Sites Small-Group Day Trip from Avignon, Including Nîmes and Uzès
We had an enjoyable day on this tour. The guide was informative and very supportive. He attended to us, and made sure everything went smoothly. I think his name was Sylvan. My only suggestions for this tour are that 1 it could be longer, and 2 more time could be given to Uzes--perhaps time for lunch in this charming town. The tour did not disappoint!

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Our tour guide Gordana was lovely and full of knowledge. We had a wonderful day learning about Provence and Gard history. The car was comfortable. Gordana went out of her way to accomodate our needs and make our trip as enjoyable as possible. This is a wonderful half-day trip from Avignon with adequate time to see the sites and towns. We would highly recommend this day trip. Good value for money as well!

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Gordana was an extremely knowledgeable, articulate and accommodating guide. The tour was well paced and we were able to see many highlights of the region without feeling rushed or that we were skipping anything. This tour is highly recommended, especially if you have a limited amount of time to spend in Provence.

When to Get There

Uzès is at its most atmospheric on the market days of Wednesday and Saturday, but expect big crowds especially in July and August. Like most French towns, Sundays can be quiet with many shops and attractions closed; in low season, shops and restaurants also tend to be closed on Mondays.

Uzès Market

Uzès market is renowned throughout Languedoc as a great place to pick up regional produce and sample local specialties. Stalls are heaped with freshly baked bread and pastries, meat and fish, seasonal fruits and vegetables, cheeses, and handicrafts. Top buys include truffles, olives and olive oils, thyme-flavored honey, and goat’s cheese. Stick around for lunch at one of the street food stalls or terrace cafés around the square.
