Pont du Gard, Vers-Pont-du-Gard

4.0
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.

  • A magical place to be seen at least once in his life. An exceptional place that makes us go back in time. Contrary to the advice I have read, I think that costs € 9.50 per person is totally justified. The site is extremely well maintained. Congratulations to all the staff for the quality of your work!

  • What book! We had the chance to visit the pont du gard, on a sunny January Sunday: the perfect visit. Indeed, we had the bridge and museums without the crowds of the summer months, and thus had the chance to take our time and to see everything. The site is beautiful, impressive, masterful.

  • Access is not cheap, especially if it's a group, but are all very well organized and the place is worth.

  • 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.
