Make your way to Pont du Gard, 400 Route du Pont du Gard, 30210, Avignon
Those Romans! We’ve got a lot to be thankful for that’s for sure. Their legacy remains to this day for us to all enjoy and see. Visit the Pont du Gard, and you’re gazing at one of the best-preserved structures in the entire Roman world.
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?
Not only do you skip-the-line, and take a walk around a unique open-air route, you’ll also get the lowdown and learn about the importance of the structure back in the Roman days through exhibitions and virtual reconstructions. Look up, look around, you won’t fail to be impressed.
