The Pont du Gard has to be my highlight so far. This absolutely amazing piece of architecture and engineering breaths history. I spent 10 minutes just touching the stones soaking in the history and atmosphere that must have been 2000 years ago when it was built.
The Pont du Gard was an aqueduct built to provide water to the city of Nimes from Uzes in the north as there was no reliable water supply in the Nimes area. It was 50km in total length but only the main aqueduct stands with various broke or demolished pieces in other areas of the regions.
I was lucky enough to be first in the gate and got quite a few shots before the tourists arrived.
