Bridge
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.

  • An amazing site off season when there is no world! Visit to the hills on the edge of the deck with great views of the site! In short to make

  • Came to visit family, weekdays during school holidays, we arrived just before 11: 00, guided tours were complete. We recommended to wait 14 hours for the visit of the aqueduct. Pass heritage so (the pass simple Aqueduct being more available) 15.50 adults, €6 juniors. To pass the time we have the Museum and the 'cinema' (very average) documentary lasts 12 minutes. On the way to the Museum, a little too dark in general, but very interesting view. We spend a good half an hour. Quick lunch on-site (mention more for the young woman in charge of the restaurant: a real good mood even in full "shot") a walk to the beach and we are ready for the visit. BUT this one begins with the Museum during 3/4 of an hour! And that it had not told us! No desire to repeat the visit, or wait an hour to finally access the visit of the aqueduct. We offer our tickets to stunned newcomers and leave this site beautiful but poorly managed and poorly maintained. The toilet...

  • Roman 165 ha site, heritage of humanity, the bridge of Gard is the tourist place in the South of the France. Understand this book by visiting areas of discovery on the Roman.

  • A truly magnificent structure set in a beautiful river valley. Best seen off season when there are less visitors. The visitor centre is brilliant and brings to life the times it was built, and explains why water was so important. They really do these things well in France.
  • I don't know if you can walk on top any more. I was there in 1975 an 1983, two separate 6 and 7 month bicycle tours.It is an amazing piece of architecture. A must see. It also was free!
  • €18 to park, not great if there's only 2 of you. Then walk to the bridge. It's a lovely place and the bridge is much bigger than I expected. You walk across a part of the bridge that is not Roman though which was a disappointment and you cannot go on the top level. Unless you intend to swim or walk along the river valley there isn't much to do once you've looked at and stood on the bridge so it is an expensive hour for 2 people.
  • This is very hard to review... on the one hand, the bridge is beautiful and definitely worth seeing. On the other, just driving into the car park will cost you €18, which I was absolutely livid about. I literally just wanted to jump out and take a photo of the bridge. This is not particularly well signposted. It is on the side of the ticket machine, which I didn't see because a) I was driving on the other side of the car and b) I was more concerned with lining up the window than looking for information. It is more cost effective if you have 5 people in one car, as you just pay the €18. Or if you park at the car parks outside of the main area and walk in (though it's quite a walk). Like I said, the bridge itself is incredible. Take your swimmers and a towel if it's hot, and a picnic and make the most of the day. You can swim or kayak in the river below the bridge. But if you want to do like me and go to just experience the bridge and take a photo, I recommend walking.
  • Amazing site, low prices for the museum and very friendly staff. I wonder how other reviews could be less than 5*. We are a family of 4 and we were absolutely stunned by the the natural beauty and the Roman exquisite engineering and artistic genius. We will definitely come back and recommend it to our friends!
