Pont du Gard Tours

star-4.5
206 Reviews
Pont du Gard
Reaching a height of almost 160 feet (49 meters), the three-tiered Pont du Gard bridge was part of a 31-mile (50-kilometer) Roman aqueduct network that carried water from a source at Eure to bathhouses, fountains, and patrician villas in Nîmes. Constructed in the first century, the ancient engineering marvel is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Basics
Visitors can prebook an admission ticket to the Pont du Gard site. Tickets gives access to the first level of the bridge; a museum; the family-oriented Ludo Children’s Center; the open-air Mémoires de Garrigue trail, which covers local agricultural history; and a cinema that screens a short film on the Pont du Gard. Upgrade with the Pass Aqueduct to join a guided tour of the top level of the bridge too. 

Many travelers come to the bridge during guided day tours from Avignon, Arles, Aix-en-Provence, Marseille, and even Paris. Day tours typically combine a visit to the Pont du Gard with stops at Avignon, Uzès, or Nîmes, or at picturesque Provence villages such as Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Les Baux-de-Provence, Gordes, and Roussillon. Some day tours to Pont du Gard include wine-tasting sessions in Côtes du Rhône or Provence. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Pont du Gard is a must for history enthusiasts. 
  • Wear comfortable shoes; you’ll spend a lot of time on your feet as you explore the site.
  • Bring a swimsuit so you can paddle, sunbathe, and even canoe in the Gardon river. 
  • With flat paths and adapted buildings, much of the Pont du Gard complex is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
Pont du Gard is situated between Remoulins and Vers-Pont-du-Gard, about 13.5 miles (22 kilometers) from Nîmes and 15.5 miles (25 kilometers) from Avignon. High-speed TGV trains connect Paris to both Nîmes and Avignon in less than 3 hours. From Avignon, take the A15 bus to the Pont du Gard site. From Nîmes, take the B21 bus. 

When to Get There 
June, July, and August are usually the driest months, making them a good time to visit the site, much of which is in the open air. On select evenings in June, the bridge is the setting for the Les Féeries du Pont sound and light show. The summer months are also peak visitor season. Tourist numbers begin to wane in September. 

Best Views of the Pont du Gard
While you will have excellent views of the river from the bridge, the best views of the Pont du Gard itself are from the banks and the hillsides surrounding the river. Follow the 2.1-mile (3.5-kilometer) Aqueduct Trail for some of the best lookouts and photo opportunities.
