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.

  • Lovely parking lot. Lots of walls for a picnic inside past the gift shop and museum. A long path to the bridge but good views immediately!

  • The state of preservation and the sheer size of the aqueduct (it is the tallest among the still standing, as the official sources would have it) are amazing. Not sure if taking a stroll on the top layer is still allowed, but we took a chance and it was breathtaking (not recommended for the faint-hearted, mind you). An awesome reminder of the genius of architecture of old Rome. If you are there in the summer, a dip in the river below the aqueduct could pleasantly surprise you - it worked splendidly for us.
  • Impressive structure. Built by the Romans, and still holding strong 2,000+ years later. Nice little walks across the aqueduct, along the river and surrounding hills. Also easy access to the river for swimming. Fee for the museum. Free to walk around area.
