As we planned to drive from Nîmes to Montpellier we thought we'd have a brief arvo stop at the Pont du Gard and just check it out. What intended to be a quick stop over and check it out turned into an afternoon of adventure! After walking across the aqueduct itself, we went on a trail walk, checked out a... More

We made a mistake of entering the site around midday, because even 5-6 hours to the close is not enough to enjoy the site. Luckily we were also one of the 5-6 people on this sprawling historical relic, a rare treat. It was a windy yet sunny day with temperatures dipping below 5, and the large work of engineering looming... More

It is truly amazing how this was built 2000 years ago . It is truly in a magnificent setting. Well worth the visit and the entry fee.

My husband and I didn't have a car when we visited Avignon so with help from the Tourist Information center in town, we took the bus. Very easy to do, it cost 10 euro each and that includes the price for exhibits and roundtrip fare. The Pont of course was amazing and on a foggy day it was particularly moving.... More

I was surprised by the 18 Euros cost to park the car but when I realised that it included entry into the museum and upkeep of the site and could see work in progress I thought it really wasn't that bad for entry for two people. You can park much further away and walk but be prepared to walk a... More

Have visited this place twice now and each time I've seen it was better than before.. Incredible sight to view and take in.. Love history anyway but it's size and place is just amazing. On top of a lovely lake where you can have a paddle to cool your toes or get in a kayak and be adventurous.. So picturesque... More

This was incredible. We hiked all around the hills on both sides and had a great time exploring. It is a truly amazing feat of engineering. The whole aqueduct system that they built is so impressive. It has a great museum, but the real attraction is the bridge, and the beautiful surroundings.

This is a very nice place to visit. Full of history and has a good structure for visitors. The only thing that is not well advertised is the museum which is really marvelous! We ended up in the museum by accident and we'd like to be there before viewing the pont. Is a very rich explanation that the museum provides.

This impressive aqueduct contains the largest arch every built by the Romans. It is 2000 years old. As with so much Roman engineering, the visitor can't help but be impressed. Those guys were great builders (with slaves, of course, doing much of the work). The site is busy with tourists. Our guide book cautioned us about car break ins, so... More

This 2000 year old engineering marve was one of the highlights of my trip to Southern France. Amazing!
