The Pont du Gard is a 50 kilometer (31 miles) aqueduct that stretches between Uzès and Nîmes. It is located in Vers-Pont-du-Gard commune in the South of France, and UNESCO made the aqueduct a World Heritage Site in 1985.

The famous aqueduct was constructed by the Roman Empire in the mid first century, before the dawn of the Christian era. The bridge is almost 50 meters high (164 feet) and has 3 levels, the longest being 275 meters (902 feet). Its first level carries a road and its third level carries a water conduit.  

 The Pont du Gard is currently one of the most visited attractions in all of France.

Practical Info

The Pont du Gard is about 25 kilometers (16 miles) west of Avignon. The picturesque roman aqueduct is a remarkable aesthetic and architectural feat.
