This department has immense flatlands going from the Camargue, with the distinguishing relief of Causses and the Circus of Navacelle, to exceptional panoramas such as the Gorges of Gardon, the Pont du Gard and the Cévennes.

The festive spirit is embodied at the Ferias of Nîmes, and is felt during the votive festivals that happen all over the départment. The reputation of the wines of Camargue is not to be taken light-heartedly, and the varied cuisine is savoured in even the tiniest villages: the Bull Gardiane (herdsman), the Fougasse of Aigues-Mortes, rouille, tapenades...
