Shame about the cost

An architectural marvel but I have to agree with TravellingDoctorDan – I think that it’s disgustingly expensive. It’s a bit unfair that up to five people can visit for the same... read more

This amazing building is a must see for anybody traveling in the south of France. Make sure to bring enough time so you can appreciate not only the aqueduct from both upriver and down river but also maybe have a swim (COLD!!!!) or pass under the Pont by Kayak. Strongly recommended to climb the hill and go into the real... More

A lovely way to spend a few hours was to Canoe down stream to the bridge. Those Romans knew how to build an aqueduct!! Spectacular!

An architectural marvel but I have to agree with TravellingDoctorDan – I think that it’s disgustingly expensive. It’s a bit unfair that up to five people can visit for the same price as for one person!

You really do have to see it to believe it. It is massive. We had our driver stop so that we could view it. He waited for us in the parking lot. Doing it this way, without a guide inside, we think is sufficient. 7 euro/each entry fee, plus I think there was fee of about 11 euro to park.... More

We arrived early in the am to beat the crowds and the heat. Museum is very worthwhile to understand the aqueduct, how it was built, and the history around it. The site is amazing, and many trails to hike to the top for great views- trails are on both sides. Wear sturdy walking shoes, and take your bathing suit, as... More

We visited by public bus from Nimes - relatively easy to do.. You can by an entry ticket combined with bus for €10. The bus stop at the roundabout is a few hundred metres from the entry. Walk down from the visitors centre and you see Pont du Gard. Cross over and view from the other side as well. Good:... More

If you are in Provence, you must visit Port-du-Gard. Not only is it in a stunning location, it is one of the best preserved Roman aqueduct standing today. For all amateur history buffs, I don't there are many more things you can enjoy more.

We arrived the site expecting to pay something but not €18! They have planted massive trees around the site so that you cannot even view it from a distance. Disgusting!! To all who want to visit BE CAREFUL that you understand the costs as once you get to the parking barrier they refuse to allow you leave if you do... More

In a world where buildings are torn down after 40 years, it is really impressive to witness a construction that is 2000 years old and still strong enough to support a car (and countless tourists). Riman engineers ruled.

Must see wonderful Roman aqueduct, great architectural and engineering monument. Do not miss to visit museum with a large exposition, cinema and an exciting children's educational hall
