#2 of 327 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.

  • I have almost 20 years ago the last time the Pont you seen Gard and at that time, you could drive over over the bridge. I've researched just in googlemaps time how to get maybe free on this fantastic attraction. Enter in the Navi 'Traditionel Les Terrasses Restaurant' and Gard just go to the Pont from the other side. so not the signs. Necessarily take bathing suit - I would have to bite me on the day to have brought no towel. Even the featured city of Uzès coming from direction Avignon should visit and of course vice versa ^ ^ my son had gone to the days before blisters on the feet and wanted even before we reached the bridge back. Teens can really annoy!

  • We went by bus from Avignon. We have asked me on the way from the bus stop and bus passengers a kind of rode the left can't get off the bus, but and descend safely. I was way down at the bus stop. From the bus stop walk almost road, about 10 minutes. Because it was early in the morning of April time, not walking anyone except me, I miss the way it was. Tourists also arrived in Gard's two or three. Room was great aqueduct! Good to see with my own eyes! Home got on the bus for 2 teams got off the bus. Entertainment, is still waiting for the bus.

  • There are places like the pont du Gard, we've seen dozens of times in its history books: figure it out in front is firstly a moment of nostalgia and admiration from the construction engineering. I recommend take tour of the upper floor of the aqueduct which allows to circulate inside the water pipe (and to see the ravages of limestone) with the admission ticket option; you will be accompanied by a guide who will give all the technical and historical explanations on the book. We can spend more than one day on site because there are many hiking trails.

  • Very interesting historical landmark. There is nice information in the welcome center but the tour can take a while to wait for and all you do is walk through it. I would recommend just going and parking on the other side of the river, walking over and exploring it yourself. I wouldn't go through the tour again based on the cost and amount of time it took. You can see it in 30 minutes and hike around and have time for other nearby sites.
  • This was on my "must see" list as I cycled around Europe. I was not disappointed. An absolutely stunning piece of engineering in a beautiful location. Do give yourself some time to spend here as there is much to see and it is a wonderful place to relax.
  • We love this Roman aqueduct. We have brought friends here several times and no one has ever been disappointed. They just do not build things the way they used to. This aqueduct is more than 2000 years old.
  • This is an incredible site and definitely worth a visit. Give yourself enough time to see it from different angles and relax by the river for a little bit. Make sure you also take a guided tour through the channel on the top level to really appreciate it!
  • A beautiful and extensive aqueduct built in Roman times. This is a well set up attraction with museum, guided tours (stairs involved) , restaurants and park/picnic areas. Best visited by car but also accessible by inexpensive public transport from Nimes (be careful of the weekend bus timetable as frequency and stops change).
