The bridge is a great architectural and historical monument and, most notably, is one you can still walk on; it closed to vehicular traffic only a few years ago.

Maybe it is because my wife and I both have Civil Engineering degrees, or maybe because it is just amazing to see something that is 2000 years old that is in such fantastic condition, but we both loved our stop at the Pont Julien.

Another amazing example of what the Romans could do. Great that the bridge is still in use ( all be it just walkers and bikers now ). You can really get up close and see the strucure.

Historically beautiful, but in the middle of nowhere. Just a plaque to inform you as to why it was built there.

Visited the bridge during our stay in Provence. The bridge is a great example of Roman engineering and its hard to believe its so old! Easy to get to, walk over and explore with no admission or attendants.

It was interesting and not too far from the main road, a nice wander and close to a walkway if thats your thing. It was also fun watching the local cyclists coming and going

Nice place for a short visit and easy to reach, also by bike. Close to the authentic city Bonnieux with excellent views over the Vaucluse.
