I went to NImes specifically to visit the aqueduct, so I am biased. The site did not let me down. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. The climb to the top is a killer on the knees, but if you can manage, go for it.

After just few days after the History bilan in CM1, we were able to show to our kid the roman constructions! Along with Coloseum de Nimes, the Pont du Gard is the roman mark on Via Domitia, the road from Rome to Spain.

That visit started with a bit if a shock. As a kid I could freely access the bridge, and climb on all the levels. And the old house by the river was a hotel... Nothing of that sort nowadays. First we had to park far away, then purchase a ticket to be able to walk (about 1km) to the bridge.... More

This is a great chance for history to come alive, especially for Americans as we frequently just *read* about history that happens elsewhere in the world. While it can be much more crowded than the Right Bank access during high season, the Left Bank offers a museum and orientation film and, if crowds permit, is probably the better option on... More

Its a great site with a great Roman monument 2000 years of age. Its well served. Better for young people cz it might be difficult for elderly to go through a lot of stairs.

First visit the museum which explains the wonderful history of how this Roman aqueduct serviced towns and villages for hundreds of years. Built from Orange limestone, 50 kilometres long at its peak, 48 metres high. The site preserved today was once a road bridge in the 18th century. Take a picnic and allow at least 3 hours to embrace the... More

Even if you're not a history buff or engineer, you will still be left in awe. The area is beautiful and even without the aquaduct it's worth a day's trip. Pack a lunch and spend the day (or you can enjoy one of the two restaurants). The welcome center provides you with all the facts to be appropriately in awe... More

The Pont du Gard is one of the engineering masterpieces of the ancient world, right up there with any of the Seven Wonders. The park that has been built around the Pont du Gard, however, offers much more than just picture-taking opportunities of an amazing structure. Visitors can swim, boat, stroll or hike a variety of park trails, and eat... More

Definitely recommend a drive to Pont du Gard. Wear comfortable shoes and walk over to the other side.... and under the bridge as well... to see if from all angles. Would have been a nice spot for a picnic and swim if we'd had our children with us. Stunning roman architecture... read up on it in advance so you know... More

This Roman aquaduct bridge was built across the Gardon River between 45-50 AD and is situated near the village of Vers-Pont-du-Gard which is 12 km from Uzes and 28 km from both Nimes & Avignon. The well preserved three tiered Romanesque style bridge, 275 m long, 6 m wide and 49 m high, was a vital part of the 50... More
