You could easily spend a whole day here, but we just had half a day. There are 3 levels of ticket to suit different budgets, but you get access to well educated (and multilingual) tour guides if you spend a little more - and you can walk across the top of the bridge! It's a bit out of the way... More

Very enjoyable historic site. Plenty of parking. You can also visit the art exhibit as well as the beautiful museum. May is a good time to visit before it gets too hot and tourists season begins.

Visiting from south side. A spectacular Roman aquaduct all built with no mortar just interlocking stone blocks. There is an interactive museum and film show to visit which explains construction. I found the museum a bit disorientating as it is very dark with lots of exhibits showing construction. The gentle walk down to the aquaduct is pleasant through preserved flora... More

Unfortunately, you can no longer pay a small fee to view the Pont du Gard. Like all major tourist attractions, you have to pay for an "experience" which includes an interactive museum visit detailing Roman history in the region and construction of the Nimes aqueduct. The museum is excellent, but it is at the "left bank" car park and entrance.... More

This Roman aqueduct is simply spectacular. Museum is very well done and the grounds are well kept. The structure itself is magnificent and well worth the visit. It is just amazing what the Romans could do centuries ago.

A great place to get the flavor of history. Recommended to go to the rive gauche and climb the stairs to the viewpoint. The view is fantastic and much nicer tan the one on rive droite

My wife and I have had the chance to see examples of Roman engineering and accomplishments in a few different countries but the Pont du Gard ranks very high in our esteem. I had read quite a bit about it and seen parts of aqueducts in Italy but nothing prepared us for the size and scope and preservation of what... More

This is incredible. Wonderful for taking pictures. The museum at the sight is fascinating. It depicts how they did it. Massive human labor. But I still don't know how the Romans calculated altitude. 58 km from the springs to Nimes but only a few hundred centimeters drop over the 58 km. Movie is good too and short.

Looking at the photos , we were unsure weather to visit . We thought it would be a small bridge across a half dry river . It was the complete opposite . Magnanimous, beautiful structure with a flowing river . Took a few minutes to absorb how big the pont was . The surroundings were lush green . Families were... More

When you look at the photos of this place you kind of think "Eh" but to see it up close is a wonder. Would highly recommend stopping off to check it out, if you can organise to be there when an event is on even better. Photos from night time look amazing but it's just as wonderful in the day.
