A UNESCO world heritage site and masterpiece of ancient architecture. The Pont du Gard is truely one of the wonders of Antiquity. One of the best preserved Roman vestiges in the world and the only surviving example of a 3-storey bridge still standing today. Le Pont du Gard is steeped in history with many astounding facts surrounding it. Most remarkably is that nearly a thousand men worked on its construction but it was completed in just 5 years.
At the heart of this remarkable site is the route of the Roman aqueduct. It is the most majestic part of an aqueduct which was over 50 km, long feeding fresh water from Uzès to Nîmes.
Spend a day at the foot of the bridge on the equipped beaches or by canoe.
