Pont du Gard, Vers-Pont-du-Gard

The highest and best-preserved Roman aqueduct bridge in the world, the nearly 2,000-year-old Pont du Gard is a monument to Roman engineering and a World Heritage site. In its heyday, the aqueduct carried an estimated 200,000 cubic m (nearly 53 million gal) of water each day to the local baths, homes, and fountains. Due to the varied terrain, the aqueduct was created with different construction methods, ranging from underground construction to this bridge with three grand tiers of arches.

  • The Pont du Gard is a must for anyone visiting this part of France. Standing there and seeing something built by the Romans two thousand years ago is a powerful experience. 270 meters long, 45 meters high aqueduct in three planes, incredibly impressive construction works. Let your visit take time, go over the aqueduct, bathe in the river, yes, it can be a bit cold sometimes, but the water is clear and nice. If you have toddlers with you, make sure they have with them a net, there is a lot of fish you can catch with it and take a closer look at.

  • Beautiful site but you have to pay even to see, 9-50 per person is expensive when you are not interested in the museum (very average by the way). In short, a shameful exploitation of a global site.

  • Gotta go and do the full tour before it is closed off for good! Its UNESCO designation will require some changes to the tours to better preserve this incredible landmark. We went on a weekday in the winter and it was practically deserted. Judging by the massive car park, it looks like it would be a complete madhouse in the summertime.
  • A cool place with a beautiful view. I found the museum not too interesting for me but others I travelled with really enjoyed it. We had a picnic below the near the aqueduct and that was a great experience. I would definitely recommend to bring along some cheese, bread, and meat to your trip here for a quick lunch. There were also some neat trails nearby if your up for a hike.
