If you're in Provence Pont du Gard is a must see site. It's just an amazing structure and magnificent scenery. There's a parking lot at the park's entrance which costs 18 euros. You can climb up the path to see the water channel of the aqueduct. You can walk to the other side by way of the Roman style pedestrian... More

Obviously the Pont du Gard is a trip back in history and worth the voyage. What was however the most impressive part for us was the museum that opened some 10 years ago. We stayed 4 hours and where taken back to the time the Aquaduct and Nimes were build. A voyage through these times we will never forget -... More

This is one of the nicest tourist attractions I have ever visited. The river, the grounds, the forest, the aqueduct, the museum, the restaurants and gift shops are all excellent. There are fees for parking. You can visit the aqueduct for free. Plan to spend at least half a day visiting this site. Bring a picnic.

An amazing example of a Roman aqueduct beautifully maintained. We visited right on dusk and it was lit beautifully and was quite spectacular. We arrived at the right bank late afternoon to find that there was an 18 euro (per car) entry fee which included a museum and several other things we didn't want to see. We decided to go... More

We visited as part of a river cruise excursion and what a magnificent spectacle to behold. It is absolutely amazing what the Romans created all those years ago with very little mechanization.. The museum is also very informative and sets the scene to visit the aqueduct. This is truly magnificent and has stood the test of time .

Too expensive to get into, but very interesting. Not for the elderly or those with mobility issues, as there's a lot of walking involved, to see the sights. It is an amazingly well preserved attraction though.

We missed seeing this on a previous trip but not this time. The photos you see of Pont du Gard don't do it justice! You don't get a true feel for its size until you're standing next to it. It's awesome! More amazing is how they built it so don't miss the education you receive in the visitor's center. You... More

We had not visited Pont du Gard since 1980 and were amazed at the size of the current carpark and visitors centre. Of course the Pont itself is still magnificent and it was wonderful to see it again. Such a stunning construction. We visited on a Sunday which probably accounted for there being lots of visitors. Very expensive to get... More

Visiting friends in the south of France we had no plans to do anything in particular. We didn't plan anything nor did we research the area. We are so lucky to have friends that acted as tour guides and brought us to Pont du Gard! We were 4 adults and 5 kids and we all enjoyed the scenery and the... More

We visited this engineering masterpiece during the Christmas holidays and when we saw it, we said: "Wow!! It's magnificent!". We parked the car in a enormous area (fixed admission fee of 18 euros). The firs comment of my daughter was: how many people are there during the summer period? After I realized why: the Pont du Gard is not only... More
