A remarkable peice of engineering. Beautiful to the eye. The Pont du Gard of the 19th century (not Roman like some reveiwers suggest) originally planned as far back as the 16th century! The largest stone aqueduct in the World is stunning but tricky to access....More

Great structure from the 19 century. Beautiful views and great morning out. Well worth the visit. Avoid the hot midday sunshine.

Very cool to walk on and drive below a Roman Aqueduct that Julius Cesar built. As we were driving underneath, we thought of all of the people over the past 2,000 years that have been exactly where we were. Just breathtaking.

We were driving from Marseille to Monaco and noticed this attraction on TripAdvisor. It was only a little out of our way so we sidetracked to see it. I'm glad we did because the Aqueduc is truly an amazing feat of engineering! We parked near...More

We were on route from Montpellier to Aix-en-Provence in our 7.4 metres motorhome when our GPS sent us on a narrow, rural roads short cut. We relaxed into the unplanned detour and were negotiating a particularly narrow, winding stretch of road when we came across...More

Free to visit, but no parking area or any kind of museum, which is strange for it is the tallest historical aquaduct in the world.
