My husband and I kayaked down the river - which took about an hour. The site of the Pont Du Gard coming into view was one I won't forget. We puled over, had a picnic and swam under this amazing structure. The water was clean and refreshing. It made me want to do all my sightseeing from the water in... More

One of the top-three our journey in eastern, southern and western France. This bridge, built thousands of years ago is absolutely wonderful. Swimming in the red light of the sun at sunset with the awesome view to the bridge. If you're visiting Nîmes, it's an absolutely must-go-place!

It is easy to get here and there is a lot of parking-space close to the structure. You pay only for it, not for the entre. Going to Pont du Gard, You cross a building with a lot of restaurants, shops and Info about the history of this area. It is no long walk, and you can nearly come everywere... More

What a great place to take the family, you can experience history and make sure the kids have fun too. Take your bathers with you and a seat, picnic etc. the Pont is amazing and the museum gives great insight to how it was built. A good temporary exhibitor of photographs too. Great for families, stay all day.

This early Roman Aquaduct is An engineering miracle that spans the Gordon river in Provence. We kayaked down this river and had our lunch under the Aquaduct until it was time to kayak on to our pickup point. This is a free attraction that even has its own ancient graffiti dating back to the 16th century!

As other reviewers have noted, it is expensive parking if you just want to view the bridge. However, the fee is worth paying if you want to stay for a few hours and enjoy an incredible feat of engineering along with the other features of the site. The bridge itself is a fabulous example of Roman ingenuity and it is... More

This may seem dear at first sight but €18 covers the car park, interpretative centre, view of the site and light show. Cost covers you for a car with 5 occupants. I would recommend viewing the short movie and spending as much time as you have in the museum. It's very well done, multi lingual (French, English, German, Spanish), very... More

Come just after 8 pm to profit from a reduced tariff to see the best of two worlds: Pont du Gard by daylight and then at night. The light show starts at 10.30 in July and continues for half an hour.

Pont du Gard was one of the few items on my must-see list during our recent trip to France. My wife and I visited here with out two kids (age 8 and 10). Earlier, we did a kayak trip on the river and kayaked and swam right under the Pont du Gard. I definitely wanted to visit the site and... More

The photo is self explanatory of what it is. For myself, I loved the feeling of walking on the bridge and knowing that it have been there since the Roman empire. Some little trails go high up the hill on the end of the bridge, makes sure to walk at the top to take picture with a different angle. We... More
