#2 of 413 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.

  • Spectacular and very humbling. A must see. Fantastic that so many families are swimming and picnicking around the site too. I recommend not only walking around all the ground level areas but also getting up on the higher ground locations so you can look at or down on the aqueduct. Well worth the walk and exercise. Each side of the river bank have something of interest and offer spectacular views and finer detail for all to enjoy.
  • The spot is nice and the entrance ticket includes parking, which is always nice. Be warned though: guided tours might finish early and you won't know unless you call in advance or go there. We suggested they add the info on their website, but I can't believe we'd be the first to do so... The bridge is great, the museum is nice and you have an access to river where you can refresh yourself during hot summer days. There are no life guards though.
  • Historical place that makes you say Wow! For those who admire medieval architecture will be amazed. The size and design that remained till now?! Great masterpiece of Roman culture, worth a visit and time spent there. Just find a quiet spot to admire the view, or hike towards it. C’est superb!
  • Loved visiting here. Definitely one of the highlights of my stay in France. The view is really amazing. Hiked up to take a panorama and forgot to take it because it was so amazing to see everything. I definitely recommend making a stop here.
  • Breathtaking views, a real architectural treat. A truly fantastic place to visit. We went in early April so it was quiet and less tourists are there. But in a lovely day the bridge and the views blew us away.
