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!

canoe from collias. we take our double canoe on roof rack, saving around £70 each day paddle in france (we do up to 6 which pays for the canoe each holiday). the paddle to pont du gard is unchallenging, picturesque and with plenty of fabulous stop-offs for picnics and wild swims. pause for lunch at the famous Roman aqueduct pont,...

I have been to So. France several times but this was my first visit to Pont du Gard. It is incredible. It is much more impressive in person. Pictures don't do it justice. It is much larger than the pictures show. Once you walk across the bridge/aqueduct there is a huge cave like opening under a massive rock where prehistoric... More

Just stunning what a sight - was busy but not overly so - gobsmacked by its size and age - great - make sure you see the museum downstairs very good worth a visit

You come upon this enormous man-made structure while walking through a beautiful wilderness along a river with absolutely no sign of civilization for miles and miles around. And suddenly, there it is, huge, gorgeous, impossible - no trace of where it came from, how it was made, or who put it there. Of course, you can read all about it... More

My husband and I took a kayak trip down the river. It gives a great view of the Pont du Gard. Its relaxing and beautiful. We didn't make it to the museum attached in time but the walk up and across the lower portion was a good experience. There is an area near the parking to use the restroom and... More

Pont-du-Gard is a very small, rural French village about 25 minutes from Avignon, France (maybe 90 minutes north of Marseille). It's the second-highest surviving Roman structure (outdone only by the Coliseum in Rome, by a mere 6 meters). It's part of a thirty kilometer aqueduct that provided running water to Nimes two millenia ago! One advantage to traveling in January... More

If you decide to go there, enjoy a full day and it will be worth. Our mistake was that we went there at around 5pm, got in the parking, everywhere closed except the walk to the Pont....couple of photos and back to the car since it was getting dark...............THE RIP OFF......we still had to pay 10 bloody euros for 10...
