Languedoc Itinerary

Day 6

Languedoc Itinerary Day 6

We'll start this morning still in Nimes, and visit the Fontaine de Nimes. This natural spring provided water for the young City, but as Nimes grew, so they had to bring more water into the city. Most famously, this included the waterway that crossed the Pont du Gard, which we'll see tomorrow. So we'll start our mini water adventure with a visit to this beautiful park with its natural spring. Don't think tap with some grass, think beautiful park, sculptures and landscaped water gardens. 
We're in completely different countryside today, typical of much of Languedoc. We'll cycle along tiny country roads as we climb gently out of Nimes, and descend to the valley of the river Gardon. We'll continue on tiny back roads through Blauzac, and into Uzes. This is a beautiful medieval town with a memorable centre. We'll spend a bit of time in the town centre before we cycle to the Hotel St Genies about a mile away.
Distance: 29 miles / 47 Km
