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.

Relaxing ride in the country
This was a very good, casual tour to see the highlights of the three locations. It was a bit of a drive between the stops, but our guide entertained us with information how the weather and soil combine to produce such fine grapes and wine. Instead of only showing the sites, we learned the history and the significance of the sites.

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Ann knew the best photo spots and she was glad to take some of us with noteworthy backgrounds like the Pont du Gard or the coliseum in Nîmes. There was a lot to see in a long half day but for us it was time we’ll spent. You don’t have a lot of time in any one spot. We learned a lot even though we’d done preliminary reading. Helps that we had a beautiful sunny day.

Terrific Tour!

Half-Day Provence Pont du Gard and Wine Tasting Tour from Avignon
Our guide Ann was terrific. A person that grew up in the area and was knowledgeable about everything we experienced on the tour (including the wine). The tour itself was very informative and we learned a lot about grapes and the making of wine - oh, and of course, the tasting! The rest of our day was spent viewing and learning about buildings and artefacts from the Roman age. An afternoon we’ll spent!! Highly recommend this tour.

Half-Day Provence Pont du Gard and Wine Tasting Tour from Avignon
Wine tasting was wonderful. Could have spent more time at Pont du Gara (we only had 30 minutes)and less time at the theater which is under construction so 3/4 of it is closed (we spent an hour there). Guide was lovely but very talkative!

Praise for our Guide Thierry and the Roman Tour in General

Half Day Pont-du-Gard, Uzès, Nîmes Tour from Avignon
Our guide for the day, Thierry, did much more than required to make our day a special one. Moreover, he knew his local history and its larger context -- after all, the day is all about Roman history -- and he also managed to work in some medieval history, too. I particularly enjoyed the Pont-du-Gard aquaduct (be sure to see it from the top of the cliffs on each side of the structure, which requires ascending a lot of steps, but it will be worth it, particularly if the sun striked one side of the ruin more than the other), the Roman arena in Nîmes (which as far as I'm concerned is a full-fledged Roman colliseum, so massive is it -- even if much smaller than the one in Rome), and don't forget the Roman temple only a block or two away in Nîmes, which is well worth seeing because it's so well-preserved. (I had the impression that seeing the temple was "optional," though I could be wrong -- in any event, I certainly did not want to miss it, especially since it was such a short walk from the arena.) The visit to Uzes has nothing to do with Roman history, but it's a nice place to take a break between the Roman ruins in Pont-du-Gard and Nîmes, and since the Uzes visit falls around lunch time you can grab a bit to eat there. I highly recommend the ratatouille at Les Terroirs, if you want to experience this classic local fare (which was often surprisingly absent from menus elsewhere): it was perfect, and quite possibly the best dish I ate while in France.

The guide, “Terry,” was knowledgeable and friendly and rearranged the tour to make the most of the unusually rainy weather. Also, he went out of his way to help us catch a bus after the tour.

Half-Day Provence Pont du Gard and Wine Tasting Tour from Avignon
Anna did not disappoint us despite all the obstacles that was put up in front of us (Roman theater was closed, wine tasting was closed because of the wine expo). She came up with options to make the tour go well! She also notified her colleague of the upcoming closing so they can alter their tours. Great job and thank you Anna!

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.

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.
