Built in the 1st century AD, Pont du Gard is the three-tier river crossing of a 50km aqueduct which supplied water to the Roman city of Nîmes. It’s in impressively good condition for its age and you can get up close and personal as you walk across the river beneath the arches. The site is well-developed, with a visitors’ centre and shops, and is wheelchair and pushchair friendly (wheelchair loan is available). It’s a great family outing – there are kids’ activities, including the Ludo area where they’ll learn about Roman life and archaeology. In the summer, the banks of the River Gardon are open for sunbathing and swimming, so take a picnic and make a day of it.
