Pont Du Gard

Some monuments are visible for miles around. Others just creep up on you and suddenly hit you between the eyes. That’s how I first saw the Pont Du Gard.

I’d heard a lot about how impressive this Roman aquaduct was, but until I was there it was difficult to believe. True – seeing the pale stone set against a pure blue winter sky did help, but it really was a stunning image.
Just like a six year old, I was darting around trying to find the best viewpoints. It’s great to be able to walk across, under and around the viaduct without seeing hundreds of warnign signs or having a warden shouting at you to “get off”.
