The Pont du Gard is probably the most famous Roman aqueduct in the world with its three tiers of arches taking water from a gushing spring at Uzes, along 50km of aqueduct winding around a valley, across the Gardon river via the Pont, and arriving at Nimes, just 3 metres lower.
The start of the water's journey is in a beautiful large park in Uzes, which can be reached from town on foot via a fairly steep path down the hill, or from a car park at the bottom.
A nice path along the edge of the stream takes you to the source, which some 2000 years after the Romans first tapped it is still supplying Uzes with it's drinking water. The water is gushing out at this point just below some of the original aqueduct, more of which can be found as you trace its path for about 1.5km before it runs into private property.
It makes for great day out to see the beginning of the water's journey, then visit the Pont du Gard then finish at Nimes at the castellum where the water was distributed via 9 lead pipes through the town.

Have a wonder around the market and fill your picnic basket to take down to the river, for a lovely afternoon in the sun or in the shade.

This contains the resurgent spring that the Romans used to provide water for Nimes. The water was carried in an aqueduct whose main artefact was the spectacular Pont du Gard. There are parts of the aqueduct exposed in the vally.

No one here. Locals - who mostly are retirees -are not out and about. This place screams for tourists.

When the sun shone on Easter Sunday we decided to walk here. What an amazing sight - families everywhere picnicking ( complete with beautiful tablecloths and small stoves) , children playing ball games, Dogs enjoying a free run. All with the historic backdrop of the beginning of the Roman aqueduct. A large family from Algeria offered us some of their Easter cake as we passed. It was a blissful & tranquil afternoon which we will always remember

Eure is a spring where the romans catch the water for te acqueduc to Nimes over the "Pont du Gard".
So it is an historic place, with many remains of the time.
It is also a nice and green valley where you can walk in the shadow of the big trees.
Very refreshing in the summer heat.

Anyone wanting to plan their trip to Uzes is likely to be confused by the title of this attraction which should be La Fontaine d'Eure or Les Sources d'Eure as there is no river called the Eure in this part of France!

This valley is a great place to visit for a picnic on a hot day. Shady trees alongside the river plus 2000 years of history with the remnants of the aqueduct. Walk along the tracks until you find the right place to stop and eat.....perfect with children who need a break from sightseeing!

A very good park, tucked away in the valley to the east of the town, it has moving water, exercise circuits and plenty of grass for children to run around on. The views are good and the steep cliffs enclosing the valley majestic...and for added interest, there are remains of the Roman aquaduct that ran to the Pont du Gard and on to Nimes....how much more can you get in a small town park??? A great place to go to find shade when it is hot!!!

I recommend approaching by car or if walking down the path by the swimming pool. The walk down Chemin Andre Gide down to the river is steep and uneven. OK if you are fit and have suitable shoes.
