A visit to see the Pont du Gard is highly recommended if you're in the vicinity. Or even if you're not. The attractive visitor centre has lots to do for both adults and children, with the exhibition, museum, cinema and the Ludo kid's museum - as well as cafes, shops and restaurants. Obviously the aqueduct is the main reason for... More

If you're visiting the Western Provence region of France, then this really has to feature in your plans. We got there early in order to avoid the tourist flocks and it was worth the effort. We almost had the aqueduct to ourselves. The site has a car park, museum and cafeteria but only enough to keep your family entertained for... More

there is a beautiful park preserved for this monument, and it is a pleasure to walk in it, and see it all.

Take a picnic lunch and go on a summers day. Museum fantastic. Many tourist in the morning but go later in the afternoon and enjoy the peace and quiet of the area. Spend at least half a day to take in the fantastic structure and the history in the museum will help you understand, this magnificent structure. There are places... More

This is an excellent attraction and one that has been a highlight of our current trip. Highly recommend to everyone. Just be careful, my wife and I were having a picnic lunch under the bridge and someone was throwing rocks off the bridge. Two rocks missed my wife by centimetres. If wishing to walk down under the bridge, just be... More

This is just such a feat of engineering. Bring your bathing suit and plan to kayak down the river and under the aqueduct...we were sad that we didn't have time for that but it looked like so much fun!

The fact that you are obliged to pay €18 to park to see this site is scandalous. This is just the French government ripping off tourists. We tried to leave as soon as we arrived at the reception desk but the Frenchman at the ticket barrier refused. He also refused to speak any English until we had paid, when he... More

For €18 you get car parking and access for up to five people, not a bad deal considering the facilities provided. Validate your ticket at the Visitor Centre, and keep it safe, it is your exit key from the carpark. There's quite a lot of walking involved, but no stairs unless you want to climb to the very top to... More

This is obviously one of the prime attractions in the area - a real must-see. As someone who likes to focus on the main attraction rather than too much audio-visual frippery I made an early start. I was using public transport from Nimes, and found I was the only person making this journey on the first bus of the day.... More
