There's much more than the aqueduct, so allow more time!

An extensive nature reserve has been made around the spectacular bridge, so there are many ways to view the area. From the carpark/entrance, it's about half a mile to the aqueduct and the approach road has been designed to maximise the wow factor. To see the real thing is simply amazing. It is just so hard to believe that almost... More

Another of the must-see Roman structures in southern France. It just boggles the mind what they were able to accomplish, all without modern machinery --- or mortar. There really is no entrance fee, the only charge being an 18 euro charge per car for parking. If you have a full car it's quite a deal for the experience; there were... More

Pont du Gard is certainly worth the trip if you are in the Avignon area. For my wife & me who were staying on the other side of Avignon in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorge, it was a long ride, especially on often poorly-signed French roads. But the trip was worth it. My first impression of the park within which Pont du Gard sits... More

Be prepared to be awed! The grandeur, size of the stones used in construction, design, and of course appreciation of its age and the excellent condition that it is in will give you such respect for those who designed and built this incredible Roman aqueduct. This is a place to explore from many angles take the time to view and... More

Once we got over the shock of the 18 euro charge per car (having tried both sides of the river to see if one side was cheaper, which it wasn't, obviously!!) we had a fabulous time. An English lady in Nyons told us to see this place, if she hadn't, I might have picked up a leaflet in a tourist... More

Dear friends, please do not compare this masterpiece made by romans with the grand canyonnor a beach in Rio. Are you kidding me ? When you get there and look up, you must imagine how the romans used the woods to build up giant cranes, with many pulleys, ropes, how many workers/soldiers and slaves were working to build this absolute...

the photos do not do justice to this incredible work of architecture and engineering that is a wonder of the ancient world. If you are within a day's drive you MUST see this. The terrain is a bit strenuous if you want to go up on the hills to see the channel Beware you can no longer get to the... More

This site is one of the most magnificent architectural sites I have ever visited. The aqua duct is in incredible condition. I recommend going in the evening. The museum is closed in the evening however the visitor's building remains open for rest rooms and for parking kiosk. Pack a picnic basket with some wine and cheeses and just sit and... More

Aqueduct was amazing- huge testament to Roman engineering - it also has a museum (it was okay), walking trails and gardens, cafes, etc. We saved some money by packing a picnic and than eating ice cream there. Cost was 18 € for family rate with parking. The river looked like it would be so much fun in the summer for... More

LOVE this place. I rate it higher than the Grand Canyon or Eiffel Tower. Last visited in '95. They have added an awesome, educational museum. The "pont" is the most amazing human created structure ever!!!
