This one of the highlights of our tour in France. It is an amazing example of the ancient Roman technology. The Pont du Gard is an arched bridge and part of the Nimes aqueduct, a 50 kilometre system with a twelve meter drop from source to destination built in the first century AD to carry water from a spring.

Highly recommended for nature lover, you could also bring your dog to enjoy the beauty of the place. Make sure to bring a bottle of water when you visit and a wear good pair of running or hiking shoes.

Try and get a tour guide to really explain. There is so much information to absorb and it is all fascinating. The engineering is fascinating. Don't miss the top of the hill for the panoramic view.

We visited the Pont du Gard in September 2016. It is a very impressive structure - built on 2 levels. It is definitely worth the long walk up to the top to see the Bridge and the views around.

Suppose I didn't know really what to expect but having decided to drive to the location was pleasantly surprised by the set up. You obviously have to pay now to see the bridge but inclusive of parking it's not a bad deal. The bridge itself is stunning particularly as sun sets. Definetly worth a visit.

A very impressive sight and a scramble up the path near the bridge brings a reward of great views of the bridge. Also interesting sculptures on route to the bridge. There is also a visitor centre showing a film about the bridge and a large museum located in the centre. A well developed site well worth a visit.

Don't waste lots of time in the museum, it's an ugly building, completely out of keeping with its surroundings it doesn't have a natural flow to it and is really only worth visiting to see the film showing an aerial view which runs from the water source to Nimes, taking in the other ruined aqueducts and pipelines along the whole...

We drove over to visit this world heritage site. There is ample parking. There are plenty of walks at the site and you can climb steps up to the to of the aqueduct. There is a museum and cinema cafe and gift shop at the site.

Well worth a visit. Amazing how advanced the Romans were and that their structures are still standing.
