Pont de Tusset

Verdon Tourisme > Pont de Tusset

Dating from the 17th century, this pretty bridge over the Verdon is well worth the detour… It’s an ideal walk for a special moment in the heart of the Verdon: a calm, unspoilt place, far less crowded than the Gorges.

At the end of the Couloir Samson parking lot (opposite the road), you’ll find the Pont de Tusset path, which follows the GR 49. After a short but steep descent through the undergrowth, you come to the Pont de Tusset: one of the most beautiful bridges spanning the Verdon.
The presence of a bridge here is not recent: the first construction dates back to the 11th century!
Take the same path for the return journey, but beware: it’s very stony and slippery.
