Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / Vaucluse / Luberon / Bonnieux / Pont Julien
The Pont Julien (French for Julian Bridge) is a Roman stone arch bridge over the Calavon river, in the south-east of France, dating from 3 BC. The supporting columns are notable for openings to allow floodwater to pass through.See Pont Julien and all Bonnieux has to offer by arranging your trip with our Bonnieux travel planner.
It is located in the territory of the commune of Bonnieux, north of the village of the same name, and
8 km west of Apt. Originally, it was built on the Via Domitia, an important Roman road which connected Italy to the Roman territories in France. It was used for car traffic until 2005, when a replacement bridge was built to preserve it from wear and tear. It is still used as bike- and footpath. This amounts to approximately 2000 years of uninterrupted use.

Pont Julien reviews
Not worth driving miles to see, but if you are in the area it's definitely worth stopping, especially if you are a photographer.

Stopped to have a picnic beneath this impressive bridge as we hiked across the valley. Beautiful location with a long history. Easy place to enjoy some sunshine on the wide banks beside the river.

Great stop if you’re in the area. This bridge has been in use over 2,000 years so that’s a good reason to visit. The river is dried up but still amazing to check out.
Lovely old bridge where you can enjoy a picnic on the grass. Very popular with cyclists as on major cycle route
