Beautiful sight for a day out, but plan ahead

I imagine that, like most sights in the south of France, it would be best to visit this spot in June or September, when it could be less crowded, as it was challenging to find a... read more

In the park to canoe and eat something nice or take a swim. Its a park for everyone... but as an Swedish I prefere that should have been... More

We did not get here until later in the day. Oh, if we had only known! We should have brought our bathing suits. We could have stayed all day and gone swimming and hiking. The entire area was so beautiful. Will definitely return.

Once you see this amazing structure built in the 1st century AD to supply water to nearby towns, great place to have a picnic, swim or ride some canoes. If the weather is lovely, a great day had.

We spent a great afternoon at the Pont du Gard - as we were camping nearby, we could walk and therefore didn't have to pay for parking. As an added benefit, we found remnants of the feed to / from hte aquaduct, which you would not normally stumble across. Well worth the walk! I'm not sure that the video and... More

An amazing structure and well worth a look round, also worth going is the museum (included in price) which tells you about the Pont Du Gard ,how it was made and the history. A good morning/afternoon to look around.

Chances are, if you're going to Pont du Gard you're going to be driving a bit since it's not super close to a lot of other things. What I recommend is making an afternoon of it. We did something else in the morning, then brought a picnic lunch, bathing suits (also water shoes really come in handy), and towels. The... More

This is a great place to visit. We went on a very very hot day but still had fun. If properly planned you can also go for a swim in the river which is quite shallow near the bridge and chill by the water. We were not aware of this, therefore did not carry a change of clothes.

I imagine that, like most sights in the south of France, it would be best to visit this spot in June or September, when it could be less crowded, as it was challenging to find a good spot on the little beach due to the vast number of visitors. There are a number of tourist traps along the walk to... More

If you make it to Provence it is a must see. It is amazing to be able to see, and touch such a historic object. It was built around 60 AD, and still astounds me when I think of the engineering feats that the Romans accomplished. I think you will be amazed also by the sheer size of the aqueduct.

Tis hat to be on every to do list if you are in the Nime, Arles area. The river Gard can also be used for kayaking. The aqueduct is in very good condition, aking the point that is is an abcian water supply system that is nearly 2000 years old.
