Day 212 – Pont du Gard, France
Although today was unusually cold and rainy, we did not let the weather spoil our sightseeing plans. This afternoon we hopped on a bus heading to Pont du Gard (located 40 minutes outside of Nimes). Pont du Gard is a historic Roman aqueduct bridge dating back to the first century. Scholars estimate that at one time Pont du Gard carried over 40 million gallons of water a day to Nimes. It was VERY interesting to see this World Heritage site and to learn more about it.
