The Roman amphitheater was built at the end of the first century AD. It hosted gladiator fights for vast audiences… until they moved on to bullfighters, sportsmen and performing artists. It is the top bullfighting venue in France. And by showing their student card, students can get discounts at cinemas, libraries, museums and elsewhere.

Ferias: colorful festivals to savor

In June and September, Nîmes comes vibrantly alive during popular festivals called ferias. In Spanish, a feria is a fair or festival. The Nîmes version celebrates horses, bulls, music, dance and wine. All generations of people gather in the city to share intense, delightful moments.

The Southern Alps attract people eager for high-altitude adventures, whereas the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees have preserved their traditions and offer a wide range of equally tempting activities, such as water sports and modern ski resorts. In winter, the student council runs excursions so everyone can enjoy the benefits of mountain air and snow sports.

The camargue: an unspoilt area worth visiting

Sky and sea merge on the blue horizon, while white horses and black bulls roam free. The Rhone delta is home to more than 350 species of resident and migratory birds that nest and breed here; it is one of Europe’s few migratory bird reserves. This wild and protected region’s fauna and flora are exceptionally rich.
