Pont du Gard is a very well preserved Roman aqueduct built in the 1st century AD. It is the highest at 160 feet and the most recognisable structure in southern France. 50km long, most of it is under ground and took water from the hills to the city of Nimes. An extraordinary architectural undertaking, built with precision and mastery. A must see.
Don’t forget your bathing suits, jumping in the River Gardon from the cliffs along the shores is irresistible. A beautiful natural spot for lunch, 18€ per car load to enter. We also visited the museum and gift shops.
