The Pont du Gard is undoubtedly the most spectacular construction of the Gard. It is the highest aqueduct from the Roman era. This bridge, built during the 1st century rises 48 metres above the water, counting 3 levels of arches and a length of 275 metres. It is listed as World Heritage by UNESCO today, and also the best visited monument of France from Antiquity. Particularly since the restoring works, the area is even more unspoiled. A museum is dedicated to the history of the bridge, with a special exhibition for children. In summer, polychromes are projected on the bridge.
To discover the Pont du Gard in a spectacular way, a canoe trip on the Gardon is probably the best option. Several more or less long circuits offer the possibility to enjoy the sight of the bridge from the river. Sailing with a canoe under the arches of the bridge allows you to admire the impressive dimensions of this monument.
