Although I visited Pont du Gard with my wife, our teenaged sons would have loved it. This is a great place if you have active kids. Although you cannot climb on the aqueduct, there are plenty of boulders to climb on down by the river, swimming or wading in the river, or hiking on nearby trails. Parking is 18Euros which... More

We took the bus from Nîmes to Pont du Gard one Monday afternoon. I worried that we would not have enough time to see everything, but you can walk across the bridge and back in less than 2 hours, which was all the time that we had. Le Pont du Gard offers some exceptional photography opportunities, particularly at night, but... More

This 3 tiered aqueduct was built in 50 BC and is still standing as testament to the ingenuity of the Romans. It is beautiful to look at. The excellent museum describes in detail the building techniques used by the Romans.

A fantastic place to spend an afternoon when the weather is good. you can bring in a picnic, wade in the river, rent canoes, go for hikes. Beautiful scenery, and the aqueduct is an amazing piece of history.

Visited with my husband on a warm, sunny day on the way to Nimes. Having seen the Pont du Gard 20 years ago I had memories of a fine example of Roman ingenuity. Should have kept it at memories! 18 euro to park the car! I ask the info man what has changed to warrant this and he shrugs and... More

World Heritage Sites are designated for a reason. They remind you of mankind's shared history, of the progress of civilization, and of our need to preserve something of our grand achievements. Pont du Gard does all of that and more. It is a stunning engineering achievement and it is a structure of great beauty. The museum provides a fine introduction... More

When our friends said they wanted to go and see an old Roman Viaduct, we agreed on the basis that we could then go on and spend a few hours in Nimes. It was a very hot day - 32C - so we expected to take a few pictures and move on. When we arrived (left bank) we pulled into... More

While the 18 Euro parking/admission charge may seem expensive, On a per person basis it is quite reasonable compared to other museum/attraction charges in France. The site is quite remarkable and the museum including cinema is very well done. Well worth the visit on a totally cloud free blue sky Provencal day.

I am so glad that we visited the site. I wish that I had taken a picnic and a swimsuit as we could have easily spent the whole day there. The scenery surrounding the site is stunning.

I visited Pont du Gard by bus from Nimes on a very warm day, 12 September 2014. It is easy to get there by bus, not so easy getting back! The bus leaves from just outside Nimes station. As you exit the station bear right and you will easily see the bus stands. My bus left 11:30 from stand 8... More
