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.

Pont du Gard Reviews
site absolument magnifique mais nous avons acheté un pass illimité et surprise dès que tu veux t'en servir après le mois de février et que tu veux faire une visite guidée du 3eme étage et bien il faut... more »absolutely gorgeous site but we bought an unlimited and surprise pass as soon as you want to use it after the month of February and want to take a guided tour of the 3rd floor and well you have to pay the entrance + visit (reduced rate) but the bridge of the Gard you do not go the Winter!!!!!!
j'insiste sur le PAS CHER car les bras m'en tombent quand je lis certains commentaires..... bref, site visité hors saison avec de multiples choses à faire autour du site : balade, le musée ...... quan... more »I insist on the cheap because the arms fall to me when I read some comments..... In short, site visited off season with multiple things to do around the site: stroll, the Museum...... When I see the quality of the Museum, I tell myself that the price is really not expensive!!!! I prefer to put qqs euros in such a visit for maintenance or other of this monument that in applli or phone packages or even TV subscription..... the visit can last 2.00 or 8.00 depending on what you decide to do!!! frankly TOP
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.
