The parking fee is essentially your entrance fee. Having seen Pont du Gard many years ago when there were no venues for food, drinks, tee shirts and other trinkets, I was amazed and disappointed to see the change. If you want to walk across the top of the Pont, I believe you must arrange ahead--not sure if there is a... More

Spent a fantastic half day here, sun was shining and the aqueduct magnificent. Car park slightly pricey but c'est la vie. TIP: when you reach the other side of the bridge turn right uphill - leads to a great panorama.

I wasn't sure that this would be worth the trip after we've recently traveled to Italy (Rome, Pompeii, Herculaneum), Athens, and Istanbul and seen many Roman artifacts and ruins. Added to that, rainy weather and some of the negative reviews made me even more skeptical. I'm very glad that we took the time to visit today. The aqueduct/bridge itself is... More

I don't understand the complaints about the price - it does cost 18E to get in but it is not to just park your car (and that price includes up to 5 people) - you also get access to the site where there are walking trails (that provide great views of the bridge with reflections in the river) and you...

Give yourself lots of time to visit the wonderful treasure. Visually pleasing in itself, the setting on the river provides ample places to sit and relax, take a long or short walk around/up/down or over the river or have a picnic and a swim. There are a number of food outlets on both sides of the river, or simply stop... More

Quite inspiring to think what was achievable back then. Really impressive and on a much grander scale than I expected

This was one of the few "must see" sites on my recent visit to southern France. It is well organized, easy to find, has good visitor facilities (including a film), and can be experienced by everyone. From the entrance to the middle of the lowest level of this amazing aqueduct, there were no steps. Unlike many famous sites which cannot... More

My first view of the aqueduct blew me away. It's much bigger than I expected and more complete. Get up close to view the wonders of Roman engineering. Get distance for a powerful view spanning the river. Great photos as the sun sets late in the day. Absolutely worth a visit.

I was here over 10 years ago and at that time I was amazed but didn't get the fullimpact of this place. This time We ate at the restaurant which was wonderfuland took the tour being able to walk through the top part of the aquaduct and go through the museum. All well worth the enhanced experience

It was an amazing Unesco site. Everything was clean and they obviously make sure to respect the site. The museum was not what I expected, I did think it would be bigger but it did have lots of information. I would recommend either bringing your own snack or eating after as the food wasn't that great that they had to... More
