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, the place we love to take every visitor we have. This ancient Roman aqueduct is such a historic place to take the younger ones and today was great to see several school trips there...

  • A UNESCO Heritage site, Pont du Gard is magnificent. The setting is sublime, even with crowds of bathers on the weekend. What an impressive site. I just wish the top was open (summer only).

  • The state of preservation and the sheer size of the aqueduct (it is the tallest among the still standing, as the official sources would have it) are amazing. Not sure if taking a stroll on the top layer is still allowed, but we took a chance and it was breathtaking (not recommended for the faint-hearted, mind you). An awesome reminder of the genius of architecture of old Rome. If you are there in the summer, a dip in the river below the aqueduct could pleasantly surprise you - it worked splendidly for us.
  • Impressive construction aging 2000 years! A wonderful site with a most beautiful nature...trees, river...people can swim and sunbath in the small beaches, do kayaking, picnics, chill and relax. I was with my family and I really enjoyed the place and the sightseeing! We will definitely return and spend a whole day there.
