Description

The Pont du Gard aqueduct is the most-visited ancient monument in France! This exquisite structure dates from antiquity and stands as one of the best-preserved Roman sites in the entire world. Skip the line and see it all, including the museum under the arches and a special open-air walking route through the aqueduct's remains.

Get the lowdown on a site that was built in the first century AD – without cranes, diggers, or tea-sipping builders in neon vests.

In use as an aqueduct until the 6th century, the Pont du Gard was a toll road in the Middle Ages, then a road bridge from the 18th to 20th century. In 2000, the ancient beauty was restored to its original condition, minus the fleets of Romans in their sandals.

Step inside the atmospheric underground museum on the Pont du Gard’s left bank and relive the eye-opening story of how the aqueduct was built. Did you know it took over 1,000 men five years to construct, and weighs almost 50,000 tonnes?

Learn about the structure's importance back in Roman times via virtual reconstructions, movies, and exhibitions. Outside, walk through the history of Mediterranean agriculture and see the aqueduct's remains.

The Pont du Gard is the only example of a three-story ancient bridge of this magnitude still standing. Impressive stuff.
