Pont du Gard, Vers-Pont-du-Gard

#2 of 244 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.

    We arrived around 5:30, and took the not discovery, the cheaper (for the guided tour or of the bridge, it was full) but it was what we wanted, having a baby. Everything is accessible in stroller. The entrance is expensive and we wonder why we pay with the discovery not going only on the lower deck (nice view anyway), but at any time they asked us our ticket... We especially enjoyed the "beach" with the kinds of wooden beds, or we have fucked dive at night while enjoying a nice view.

    All the major sites need to get funds to maintain the property and we can all understand. Mont St. Michel made his parking for desensabler Bay. However the Department of Gard has him reinstated toll to the historical sense of the word... for his own profit because it is the final beneficiary since we n have not seen any work maintenance since our visit of the year last... It seems that the site is accessible on foot but strangely good little advertising on this point or signs. However we have seen passing by the site des.pietons to get back at the guard post to go pay their tax... Be careful because the panels are not clear that you need to have paid visits to have your ticket out of

    A site that needs no introduction... The visit to the Museum is very enriching and complementary to the site

    It's a nice place where you can have a bath while enjoying great views of the ancient Roman Engineering. But it all comes to nothing when you see the individual price is around 5 to 6€, and the abusive parking fares. It's a nice place for groups though, as it's a great place to relax and do some group activities, and prices might be reduced as well.

    One of the best preserved pieces of Roman architecture. Also an amazing insight into their engineering skills. The museum is also interesting and deserves at least an hour. In general, easily a half-day activity and it's also a great outing for young families.

    Disgusting. Who has a right to charge people 8,5€ for just viewing cultural monument from the outside? Who has a right to own building built by the Romans. Also watch out for parking. If you go to parking, you must leave within 20 minutes. If you do not buy tickets and decide to leave after 20 minutes, you'll be charged 8,5€ for every person in car.

    Expensive and disappointing: I'm talking about the tourist facility, not the bridge and the natural setting, which are wonderful. We felt we had been charged €17 to park our car for 90 minutes. The 'bistro' is worse than a motorway service station. The area is expressly designed to block the view and access to the bridge and river and nothing of interest is provided for the 'admission fee'. It would be much better to hire a canoe further up the river at Collias and get access that way!

    An interesting piece of history located in a very scenic area. I didn't have a lot of time here but I would have loved to stay for kayaking, swimming, or hiking as so many others did. There are signs pointing to vantage points with nice views, however the path is not well marked.
