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.

  • We hired bikes from our hotel. This is worth a visit there is a museum and a couple of gift shops and snack bars. When you get to the bridge the view is lovely. There is a restaurant at the other side...  more »

  • A beautiful site not to be missed! The ancient 3 tiered aquaduct is most impressive as is the river Gardon below it. The museum and the film add important and interesting information about the site. I...  more »

  • An interesting piece of history located in a very scenic area. I didn't have a lot of time here but I would have loved to stay for kayaking, swimming, or hiking as so many others did. There are signs pointing to vantage points with nice views, however the path is not well marked.
  • General it is a nice aqueduct with a nice area to enjoy the sun or swing in the river. Restaurant, gift shop, toilets, small 'fast food' shop and tourist information available. It is necessary to pay a entrance fee to go into the area (also to get some food...). Parking area available and paking fee will be cleared with the entrance fee. Not seen but in the night it should be beautifully too.
  • I always love this place even I visited it 5 times. This Roman aquaduc structure is impressive even for today. Besides, there is a nice museum where you can learn from ancient technology. Finally, this place is very good for picnic.
  • An engineering marvel in a beautiful location. Bring water shoes because the beach bottom is pebbley. Wear your swimsuit and bring a sunshade, and have a beach swimming day and picnic below the aqueduct for the best experience.
  • A fabulous piece of Roman history which is well preserved and reasonably accessible. The place can get very crowded but if you choose your time well, you can have a wonderful opportunity to experience the amazing Roman architecture and engineering.
