The Pont du Gard in Occitanie

The UNESCO listed Roman aqueduct, the Pont du Gard is sure to impress. Built in the 1st century AD and towering nearly 50m above the riverbed, this should be a firmly on your daytrip list when visiting the Languedoc-Roussillon, Occitanie. Built as part of a series of aqueducts supplying the then Roman city of Nîmes, the Pont du Gard is now a well deserved UNESCO world heritage listed site.
