The highest and best-preserved Roman aqueduct bridge in the world, the nearly 2,000-year-old Pont du Gard is a monument to Roman engineering and a World Heritage site. In its heyday, the aqueduct carried an estimated 200,000 cubic m (nearly 53 million gal) of water each day to the local baths, homes, and fountains. Due to the varied terrain, the aqueduct was created with different construction methods, ranging from underground construction to this bridge with three grand tiers of arches.

  • What a spectacular historical site. Perfect place to spend the day outdoors with kids and dogs. Lots of lovely walking trails and beautiful scenery. There’s a climb up the hill next to the bridge which leads to a panoramic view point, which is definitely worth the climb.
  • Another lovely Roman project still in good shape! We arrived quite late but still have fantastic time here. We have to deep in the tempting water as well . Warm and clean with rocky beaches and rocky bed (water shoes helped children). Sadly we leaving soon and can't come back for more this year! I don't think the all day parking charge is expensive at all €9! You can't please everyone! Coffee /ice-cream and snacks on site also clean toilets! Highly recommended!
