400 route du Pont du Gard,La Bégude

The Basics

Visitors can prebook an admission ticket to the Pont du Gard site. Tickets gives access to the first level of the bridge; a museum; the family-oriented Ludo Children’s Center; the open-air Mémoires de Garrigue trail, which covers local agricultural history; and a cinema that screens a short film on the Pont du Gard. Upgrade with the Pass Aqueduct to join a guided tour of the top level of the bridge too.

Many travelers come to the bridge during guided day tours from Avignon, Arles, Aix-en-Provence, Marseille, and even Paris. Day tours typically combine a visit to the Pont du Gard with stops at Avignon, Uzès, or Nîmes, or at picturesque Provence villages such as Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Les Baux-de-Provence, Gordes, and Roussillon. Some day tours to Pont du Gard include wine-tasting sessions in Côtes du Rhône or Provence.

Highly recommended!
Our tour guide Gordana was lovely and full of knowledge. We had a wonderful day learning about Provence and Gard history. The car was comfortable. Gordana went out of her way to accomodate our needs and make our trip as enjoyable as possible. This is a wonderful half-day trip from Avignon with adequate time to see the sites and towns. We would highly recommend this day trip. Good value for money as well!

GREAT HALF DAY TOUR TO NIMES, UZES AND COUNTRYSIDE

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
This tour was very good for seeing a little of Nimes, Uzes and the Pont du Gard and was the only way we could have done it in the time.. We would have liked more time to explore Nimes ideally. The minivan was very clean and comfortable and the guide extremely knowledgeable - it was like a university education in the area's history! Guillaime was very personable and happy to answer all sorts of questions. We enjoyed the morning and would recommend the tour.

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Gordana was an extremely knowledgeable, articulate and accommodating guide. The tour was well paced and we were able to see many highlights of the region without feeling rushed or that we were skipping anything. This tour is highly recommended, especially if you have a limited amount of time to spend in Provence.

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Guillaume was our guide and driver and was extremely knowledgeable about French history and kept us informed and amused throughout the trip. Good amount of times at the Pont du Gard, but could have done with more time in Nimes to see more of the arena. Uzes was also interesting and gave us taste of the area.

Just excellent way to visit the overall area in the beginning of our vacation. Jeremy was excellent. We all enjoyed ourselves and learned a lot. We then went back to key areas where we wanted to spend more time. Many thanks to Jeremy. Nelson Burns

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Gordano was an excellent and friendly guide who provided lots of great information. She gave us time for pictures, and made special stops to allow us to do so. Six of us in her comfortable van, water bottles provided which was a nice touch. Definitely recommend this tour with Gordano (sp?).

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Gordana (sp??) was lovely! Very upbeat, cheerful with incredible knowledge of the area. She was very professional and did a great job of balancing the group. I would highly recommend this tour as it is a bit off the beaten path but some amazing sites that are not overcrowded during the high season.

Wonderful Tour

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
We had a wonderful tour visiting Nimes, Uzès and Pont du Gard. Gordana was a wonderful guide. She is very knowledgable about the area and gave us lots of information about the history of each place we visited. We loved our stroll through Uzès town (wished we had more time there) and she was also kind to take a slight detour to show the origin of the stream for the Pont du Gard. We also wished we had more time to enjoy Pont du Gard. The one major PLUS point of taking this tour is that you get to pay reduced fees (5€ instead of 10€) at Pont du Gard. Gordana was also very kind to drop us at Orange as we had planned spending rest of the day there. We loved this tour and would recommend it to someone who would like to do a quick short tour of the areas near by.

When to Get There

June, July, and August are usually the driest months, making them a good time to visit the site, much of which is in the open air. On select evenings in June, the bridge is the setting for the Les Féeries du Pont sound and light show. The summer months are also peak visitor season. Tourist numbers begin to wane in September.

Best Views of the Pont du Gard

While you will have excellent views of the river from the bridge, the best views of the Pont du Gard itself are from the banks and the hillsides surrounding the river. Follow the 2.1-mile (3.5-kilometer) Aqueduct Trail for some of the best lookouts and photo opportunities.
