Located in the Languedoc-Rousillon region in southern France, Nîmes is the capital of the Gard department and is home to over 140,000 people. Nîmes is a popular tourist destination with the various remains of the Roman Empire that still exist in and around the city. There are two Campanile hotels to choose from in Nîmes: Hôtel Campanile NIMES CENTRE and Hôtel Campanile NIMES SUD, which are located 1km and 5km away from the city centre respectively.
Nîmes was founded in the sixth century BC. It became a Roman colony some time before 28 BC and was transformed into an opulent Gallo-Roman city during the time of Augustus. Its prosperity ended following successive invasions and the arrival of the Visigoths in the 5th century. The city prospered again in the 17th century and cloth production was exported to the Spanish Indies and to Europe. In the 19th century, textile capital was reinvested in vineyards.
