Pont du Gard

Pont du Gard is a popular tourist destination just outside of Avignon on the road to Nîmes. It’s ironic that having journeyed through Italy we go to see a Roman aqueduct in France.

An enormous structure spanning a river, we arrive as they’re setting up for a fireworks display planned for that evening, Feux d’Hiver. It’s a nuisance that our ticket does not include re-entry as we want to see more sights elsewhere rather than stay here all day.

There is an €18 parking fee but then entrance to the monument is free.
