#2 of 463 in Things to do in Gard
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.

  • As a proud Stopfordian, it'll come as no surprise to find I’m a fan of a proper viaduct. My hometown takes pride in having one of the most significant examples of such a structure in Northern Europe.....  more »

  • Wonderful and historic structure is just awesome and splendour. Been wanting to see this place for some years and is probably the best structure I've ever seen. I can understand why and well worth the entrance fee of 9€50, (free parking after buying entrance tickets). Best to stay a full day and enjoy the river bank, have lunch and go for a swim. I would have loved to have gone under the arches in a canoe, but didn't,..may be next time. Gorgeous.
  • What a great place with an interesting history. This piece of Roman culture, architecture is a must see. UNESCO world heritage, outside of season not too crowded. Have a small dinner or lunch at the river Gard, climb on top of the hill after you crossed the aqueduct. 2-3 ways lead to higher view points, helping you to discover the entire area.
