This is the bridge that everyone talks about! The park where this bridge is in opens until midnight during summer hours and there is amazing light show every night after sunset. We stayed till almost 11 to enjoy it and the experience was simply one of a kind. Another benefit of arriving late is that there's plenty of parking space... More

This is an amazingly well conserved and deeply impressive piece of roman architecture. Hard to believe it is still around after 2000 years when nothing we build today seems to last more than a few years. You can park on either side and walk across. We didn't know so we didn't bring our swimming suits but this park is a... More

In my opinion, the website does nothing for this site of not only historic interest, but teenager interest!! The actual timing of the sound and light show for us was 10:30pm although we were advised it was 10pm. It lasted about 35 mins. It was very french, covering the origins of the pont, but also thru the ages, upto mechanisation... More

Check out the museum, don't miss the 1200 year old olive tree and then stand in awe of historical innovations. If you go under the aqueduct and down to the river, there are several sweet picnic spots in the shade if you are willing to climb a tad. The river is perfect for swimming. Take water shoes if you have... More

The Pont du Gard is a must see visit for anyone going to this area. However it is probably worth checking the prices before going, our entrance was part of pre-paid package. I would suggest that it is worth seeing the film before walking to see the aquaduct. The film outlines the reason for the aquaduct as well as explaining... More

We took along a picnic lunch to enjoy a stop at Pont du Gard on our road trip. I wish we had of planned to stay longer! There were many families kayaking down the river which looked like great fun. People jumping in the river from cliffs or just swimming from the bank of the river. There is ample car... More

Tallest Roman monument with 50m height. An aquaduct of three layers. Very very impressive. Must be visited.

It's amazing that some places in the world still don't have running water, yet the Romans had this a couple of millenia ago. Even more amazing that it's still standing! Clearly engineered better than the plumbing in my house... PS don't forget to take a peek at the ancient graffiti carved into the columns.

Museum and visitor centre are best done first then you can marvel how the Roman engineers could create this masterpiece. Museum and its dioramas is excellent and there are replicas of masons marks( signs by which the craftsman was identified) Explanations in Englis, Cafe and Tourist shops as well and do see the film about the aqueduct. The walk to... More
