Pont du Gard, Vers-Pont-du-Gard

#2 of 334 in Things to do in 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.

  • Beautiful, everyone finds a commercial ripoff, this going to pay over the years. I saw and paid, no advertising on my part, put yourself in the place of a family?

  • Absolutely worth seeing aqueduct from the Roman period. The Museum is not very well done, but offers a small glimpse of how to build an aqueduct. Parking is close to the tourist attraction and are included in the ticket price.

  • The building is beautiful and worth to him alone. Do not hesitate to take the pass aqueduct with guided tour of the 3rd floor. However rates are prohibitive (day pass parking included) if we want the bridge.

  • Very nice place to spend the day. If coming in the summer. There's a river to swim sunbathe and do many other things. The aqueduct is very well preserved and although it is not free entrance for a small fee you get to see a movie plus visit the museum and of course the aqueduct. Walk around, the view from up there is very nice and it is not far.
  • The Roman aqueducts were fascinating, but this is the best. Our tour let us cross it inside the actual canal, high atop the beautiful structures. A bit claustrophobic for some, but worth whatever to get to the opposite side. Lots of trails are sure to give many an opportunity to get great pictures. If you are going to be in the area, don't miss it if you can!
  • Free entry if you follow the cycle route through the official car park. Park nearby and walk to the bridge...it's amazing. Well preserved monument in stunning surroundings. You can walk or cycle across and admire it from either bank of the river.
  • It's a nice place where you can have a bath while enjoying great views of the ancient Roman Engineering. But it all comes to nothing when you see the individual price is around 5 to 6€, and the abusive parking fares. It's a nice place for groups though, as it's a great place to relax and do some group activities, and prices might be reduced as well.
  • AMAZING Roman aqueduct bridge. The bridge and the site is stunning. Perfect for picnic with friends and family. A must stop if you are near by.
