The highest and best-preserved Roman aqueduct bridge in the world, the nearly 2,000-year-old Pont du Gard is a monument to Roman engineering and a World Heritage site. In its heyday, the aqueduct carried an estimated 200,000 cubic m (nearly 53 million gal) of water each day to the local baths, homes, and fountains. Due to the varied terrain, the aqueduct was created with different construction methods, ranging from underground construction to this bridge with three grand tiers of arches.

Amazing historical place. The aqueduct bridge is truly an engineering marvel of its time (1st century) and very well preserved till date. There are numerous tunnels surrounding the area as well which can be explored. Various activities are conducted here during the summer which make the place look almost magical.
