Ruined by typical French predatory pricing. There were 4 of us so the per car charge of €18 was quite reasonable but for individuals or couples this pricing policy is a bit expensive. Could not see any sign of a senior discount. Fabulous, very well preserved Roman Aquaduct. Nicely maintained paths and surroundings on both sides of the river. We... More

It is truly amazing to visit this site to appreciate the skills the Romans had. I have been to quite a few Roman ruins in Italy and in Libya and in my opinion this is really one of the best I have seen. The scale of the construction is immense and the symmetry of the arches as it spans across... More

The bridge itself was beautiful,but their pricing policy needs to be looked at.Same price for two as it is for five!The cost includes all the attractions,cinema,Museum etc.whether you wish to avail of them or not. Best advice if you only wish to see the Bridge view from Rocher des Doms park for free

Well presented movie describing the building of the pont du gard was extremely informative. It is an impressive structure and easily accessible. Lovely spot - a few shops and restaurants. Very enjoyable.

Yes, there will be lots of noisy tourists but a trip to Pont du Gard still inspires awe for this magnificent structure. Really rather unreal. However, the parking cost is unreal....for entry, museum etc and parking is about $18US each. STill if you have never seen it, go.

The Pont du Gard itself is magnificent and well worth a visit. However the area has been turned into an "activity centre" and you have to pay €18 to get in, whether you want to use the facilities or not. This is not immediately obvious, only when you go to pay for the car park on the way out. We... More

An excellent and well preserved example of brilliant roman engineering from 200 years ago. The sheer scale and size of the aqueduct is amazing.

Outstanding place to visit! Take the time to view from both sides and also upstream. Amazing history, being ~2000 years old & having operated for more than 5 centuries. Allow a couple of hours.

Visited the aqueduct as part of a tour. The parking lot is some 10 minutes walk to the aqueduct on a reasonably flat path. The aqueduct is over the Gard river and the river can be crossed by a bridge and you can see the aqueduct from both sides. The aqueduct is reasonably well maintained and is very impressive. So...

STANDING HERE SINCE THE ROMANS, YOU MUST ABSOLUTELY SEE IT PREFERABLY WHEN THE SUN SETS; It's over the river in a rather wild environment and you can cross the river on a bridge under the aquaduct.
