I was really happy to make a little detour on our way to Marseille so we could see this remarkable feat of engineering. The history behind it is really interesting: according to Wikipedia it was first planned in 1565 but only built between 1841 and...More

I loved the old Roman aqueduct itself, but there’s far more to do here. In the spring and summer you can swim and raft in the river below. There’s a few museums, movie, diorama, gift shops and more.

I found this place quite by serendipity. I was staying at the Hotel Ibis Budget near Aix TGV station and wanted to find a route into Aix city centre avoiding the motorway. When I came across it, it was mind-blowing. A 19th-century version of the...More

A remarkable peice of engineering. Beautiful to the eye. The Pont du Gard of the 19th century (not Roman like some reveiwers suggest) originally planned as far back as the 16th century! The largest stone aqueduct in the World is stunning but tricky to access....More

Great structure from the 19 century. Beautiful views and great morning out. Well worth the visit. Avoid the hot midday sunshine.

Very cool to walk on and drive below a Roman Aqueduct that Julius Cesar built. As we were driving underneath, we thought of all of the people over the past 2,000 years that have been exactly where we were. Just breathtaking.

The world's largest stone bridge. The modern equivalent of the Pont du Gard.nice little river below. Calm and quiet. No tourists nor any facilities.

We visited today. We drove through country roads and came upon the aqueduc. As I was exploring to take photos I noticed some stone stairs. I climbed up and discovered a trail to the top of the aqueduc. The trail is rocky so wear proper...More

We never found a way to the top of the aqueduct itself but paddling in the river that runs under the aqueduct was a fun experience

My son wanted to watch the TGV go by at 180mph and we needed an additional attraction to make up an afternoon. This aquaduct (very close to the main TGV line) does not disappoint and was worth the drive without any other reason. It is...More
