The Great Roman Games

Each year Roman legionaries, riders and battle chariots take over the city of Nîmes to take part in one of the biggest re-enactments of ancient history in Europe. A grandiose spectacle lasting an hour-and-a-half takes place in the arena with actors from all over France, Italy and Germany. Several scenes unfold with equestrian vaulting demonstrations, gladiatorial combat and chariot racing.
