A well organised site. The car park was 18€ and a short walk led us to park. There were picnic areas, a restaurant discreetly hidden behind and avenue of trees, shaded areas by the river and well signposted walks. We explored the site and walked across the bridge by the aqueduct. The structure itself is stunning and we were able... More

There aren't too many places in Europe that are celebrated and yet exceed the fame given them. One is the Eiffel Tower and another is the Roman Colosseum; the closer you get, the more you have to pinch yourself that what you're seeing is real. Well, the Pont du Gard is in that very small group. Regardless of which side... More

We are very impressed by the museum, loads of information about ancient Roman, the construction of the bridge and the style of living 2000 years ago. The pont itself is of course nice and on top lots of water activities available in the river Gardon including canoeing, swimming and a small piece of beach to get yourself tanned while enjoying...

A brilliant set up and a fab day out. Easy parking and entry, costs 18€ per car but many hotels have vouchers for residents which gives 50% discount. Walk the bridge, swim, canoe, take in the stunning scenery..... We will definitely come back.

This was a fantastic example of a Roman aqueduct. There is a short walk past an arcade to get to the aqueduct and bridge. The arcade has shops and toilets and an information center. Once at the aqueduct you can walk across the bridge or climb to the top of a hill to get a better view of the upper... More

loved fact you could swim safely in river Gard. The bridge is stunning. Lovely walks along banks. Parking dear, so if you stay nearby see if you can get a vouchers to give you half price. Take a picnic. It is worth going for an extended stay. A fabulous highlight of my stay in Languedoc. Fabulous

Stunning visitor attraction close to Nimes...although the site was busy (we visited over 20 years ago)..there was still plenty of room and it didn't feel crowded. Sensitive re - development the sits comfortable in its surroundings and now a UNESCO heritage site.

Pont du Gard is an original Roman aqueduct, part of the extensive network of water-movement facilities built during the occupation of "Gaul" around the 1st century. It's in fantastic shape and you can walk on the main bridge very easily, take photos etc. We also walked up the long steps and then through a hundred yards of trees to the... More
