Go. Just go, you will not regret it. Not only is the pont itself truly wonderful so is the surrounding geography of the area. Beautiful. Fanflippintastic indeed. We went in January 2015 and the museum was shut so paid €10 instead of €18 for the car and occupants but we could have parked near by (not the official car park)... More

It's incredible to realise how old this structure is, and how well it must have been made over two thousand years ago. The mind boggles when you think about the engineering that must have been required. It is easy to drive to this must-see place, but the carpark is a bit of a walk from the actual viaduct. On a...

As you approach the Pont it becomes clear what an amazing place it is, photographs do not convey it's immense structure. We spent several hours wandering about- the joys of winter travel mean sites like this are not crowded, and we were lucky to have a lovely sunny day in December. Bring a picnic and enjoy the day.

18 euro for parking and the attraction for a full car is well worth it. Splendid edifice and history. Also one of the finest explanatory (of how the structure was built) museums with film show I have ever been to. Worth every cent and shame on those who criticise without seeing. We also travelled 75 kilometres to see this and... More

We visited this truly spectacular feat of human architecture during our AmaWaterways river cruise and were lucky enough to be there on a day with perfect weather. It's hard to find the words of what I felt about the enduring nature of this aqueduct, but we enjoyed hiking around. We just wish we'd brought our swim stuff with us. Something... More

We were there on a Sunday morning and it was relatively quiet. It was a glorious sunny day so a perfect day to visit this stunning monument. The site is large and offers the chance for lots of walking and great and varying views of the bridge. We began down at the river, walking underneath the bridge. Then we went... More

Pont du Gard is an amazing structure. It is an easy 45 minute bus ride from Avignon. At the entrance there is a museum and a gift shop. There are plenty of hiking trails around the area. Allow plenty of time to walk around the structure, see it from many angles. On the other side of the river is a... More

The Pont du Gard is an amazing attaraction, not only for the structure and history behind it but for the sheer size of the park. Take you tough walking shoes and you can wander the kms of tracks around the park. You cannot actually walk on the aquaduct any longer, they have closed that off. The day we were there... More

This place has to be seen to be believed - the museum is very interactive - probably one of the best I've seen - my family were all able to visit and enjoy it - the aqueduct isn't very well advertised but its worth searching out - its huge and in brilliant condition - do go - you wont regret...
