#2 of 462 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.

  • This was a nostalgic visit for me because the last time I was here was over 30 years ago - at that time we were allowed to walk in the very top of the aqueduct. For obvious reasons that isn't...  more »
  • This Roman bridge is a must see if you are in the region. You can walk over it and enjoy the view from the 1st level. You can also walk in the little park nearby or on the river and take a little....  more »
  • I wish we were more prepared and came here for longer. This is not the Pont du Gard itself, it is a big area. You should come here not for a sudden visit to see the Roman aqueduct but stay here for...  more »

  • Wonderful and historic structure is just awesome and splendour. Been wanting to see this place for some years and is probably the best structure I've ever seen. I can understand why and well worth the entrance fee of 9€50, (free parking after buying entrance tickets). Best to stay a full day and enjoy the river bank, have lunch and go for a swim. I would have loved to have gone under the arches in a canoe, but didn't,..may be next time. Gorgeous.
  • What a great place with an interesting history. This piece of Roman culture, architecture is a must see. UNESCO world heritage, outside of season not too crowded. Have a small dinner or lunch at the river Gard, climb on top of the hill after you crossed the aqueduct. 2-3 ways lead to higher view points, helping you to discover the entire area.
  • Wow experience. I don't get why you have to pay so much, but we were lucky. They didn't have electricity when we went to visit and it was all free. Yeey! It is really spectacular and worth visiting if you don't mind paying 9 Euros for it. The history behind is also interesting and the architecture, thinking when it was built, is also mind blowing.
  • Much more impressive than you could ever imagine. We approached it on cycles from the river's side blow and all of a sudden the aqueduct appeared between the trees. It took my breath away. No wonder it is one of the most visited sites in France.
  • The view was informative and relaxing. I enjoyed viewing the history from the perspective of the Roman occupation. This site doesn't take a lot of time, an hour is more than enough. We had a guide which was very helpful.
