the bridge itself looks good but the visit it's a non-sense. it's cheap and you get to walk on the bidge and see a little movie about its history, less than 20 minutes overall. I don't think it's worth, this one should be free.

I don't recall if it was free, but you must get the audio guide for this short tour because it's quite helpful to tell the legacy of the bridge. It was much narrower than I was expecting. Connected to the Pope's Palace grounds.

There's not a huge amount to see, but there is an interesting film about the attempts by archaeologists to understand how the bridge had been build originally. Unfortunately, you have to stand or sit in a rather smelly little underground room to see it. Nice...More

Visited on a Sunday late afternoon. Summer light on the bridge was beautiful. You start first with the tower where people arrived from the bridge. Plenty of written explanations, then downstairs you have 2 videos done recently explaining the work of a few scientist to...More

Really worth €5 for the experience. Great location for photos and the pleasure of telling friends I had danses on the bridge.

We came here end of afternoon and bought the combined ticket for Pope Palace. It was actually a very good idea. So the next day, you can go to Pope Palace and avoid the queue! It was a very good time to visit the Pont...More

We had purchased a combined ticket for this and the Palais des Papes which was better value than buying individually. We walked out across the bridge into the middle of the Rhone which afforded good views of the Palais. Worth going just to say we'd...More
