The Pont du Gard
When you visit the Pont du Gard, you are travelling back 40 centuries through time, through history and traditions that formed the fibre of this region, from the prehistoric men who lived here, to the Romans who built this marvellous aqueduct. It will come as no surprise to learn that these are among the best preserved Roman ruins in the world.
And, it still holds records today: with its three levels reaching up 49 metres, it is the highest aqueduct in the world. It is an ideal place to visit with all the family, with something to please each member, from archaeological exhibitions, swimming in the river or doing the hiking trail, and discovering the typical Mediterranean landscapes. Perhaps you will have the opportunity to experience a sound and light show as the sun goes down - spectacular!
