The Pont du Gard is one of the marvels of Antiquity, listed as a World Heritage Site by Unesco.


It is the most grandiose part of an aqueduct which led, over 50 km, the waters of Uzès to Nîmes.
If Rome had 1,000 baths at the height of its glory, it is understandable that the Romans, having set their sights on Nîmes, could not be content with the Fontaine source.
To find the 20,000 m3 needed each day for the capital of the Augustan colony, they went, in the middle of the 1st century, to the source of the Eure, near Uzès.
Through scrubland and ditches, ancient engineers had to build a succession of bridges and tunnels to reach Nîmes.

The resulting Aqueduct travels 50 kilometers with a total drop of only 17 meters!!
The feat says a lot about the quality of the builders, just like the most famous of the works on the route, the Pont du Gard and its 49 arches.
Classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it is a book of records all by itself.
At its summit 275 meters long, 49 high, blocks some of which exceed 2m3 and in total no doubt more than 50,000 tonnes of stones, it was designed to successfully withstand the wild floods of the Gardon.
Today, the site, harmoniously laid out with a museum, exhibitions, films, children's area and media library, hands down the promise of an unforgettable visit.

Guided tours: PLEASE NOTE LIMITED PLACES.
In addition to the day pass or as a single product, it is possible to take a guided tour of the Bridge for a privileged discovery of the Roman canals.
During the visit, the group is guided to the last level of the monument, in the channel where the water circulated during the operation of the aqueduct.
