What did the Romans ever do for us? Well if you were a citizen of Nimes they piped you in a reliable water supply from 50km away via super smart gravity feed. The aqueduct was essentially a means to water security ends, at least until the 6th C. As a tourism site the whole shabang is very well done. Great... More

A thing of beauty and and an engineering marvel. A must see 12 minute cinema provides aerial and other views you won't find on your walk. Also provides nice-to-know info on height, width and other technical data. Construction started in 50AD. Intended to carry water from Uze area to Nimes a distance of 30+km? No power generators here, just the... More

During a visit to Avignon and Provence, I knew I had to see at least a few of the many contriubutions left by the ancient Romans. I booked a tour by minibus to take me from Avignon to the Roman city of Nîmes with its Colosseum, the French Duchy of Uzès, - Le Duché d'Uzès and the remarkable Pont du... More

This is really worth visiting. Free entry to walk across the Pont but there's a minimal fee to enter the museum which is worth it. I feel the car parking is expensive though but there is not much choice.

I am glad I took time to visit the Pont du Gard, a little surprised at the cost of entry, not wildly expensive but perhaps a little too high for what it is and if you have a family in tow as it's not necessarily the best attraction for the younger team mates. But never the less, if you're smart... More

An awesome view at any time of the day or evening. Swimming is very possible. Do not miss this hands-on experience with antiquity. We go there every time we visit Provence. Never gets old.

Pont du Gard, one of the most iconic remains of the Roman period, definitely is worth your visit. We went as part of a small group tour, and we're glad to have had about an hour to explore. It was a chilly the day we visited in April, so not at all crowded. We enjoyed walking the olive groves and... More

This a definitely a place to see. The walk is beautiful in the summer . Have a lazy walk up to the aqueduct to admire in awe at its structure . I would recommend to bring a picnic and a towel to fully enjoy the trip

The Aqueduct is amazing. Based in a natural setting, the aqueduct is really an incredible sight. It is in terrific shape especially when you consider that it is over 2,000 years old. We spent several hours here as there is not just the aqueduct but a very interesting museum, a cafe on each side of the river and a lovely... More

Best day in France by far, was a hot day and loved the cold river. The amazing scenery overhead and seeing locals jump in and have a great time. One of the only times in France I didn't feel like I was in a tourist trap. If you love the outdoors you will love this place. Relax and enjoy!
