...but it's the most appropriate one for the Viaduct. You can't see much driving across it (which is expensive), but find a road that passes underneath, ideally to the Visitor Centre, and you'll see why. The Gorge is so wide that it looks like they've built a road high in the sky, just for the hell of it. This is... More

In our recent trip to Italy and France, this was a site that we had on the must-see list, and it didn't disappoint. Driving through the area without seeing this viaduct is like going to San Francisco and not seeing the Golden Gate Bridge. Be sure to stop at the museum for a short film on the design and building...

It's the tallest bridge in the world. Simply remarkable. You can learn how it was built and how long it took by watching a very short film inside.

We first saw it many km. ahead, when descending one of the hills in our A-75 journey from Clermont Ferrand to Barcelona. Impressive at this first sight but getting better when getting closer. Highly recommendable to exit the motorway and take some photos.

We decided to travel out of our way to see this bridge, based on the great reports we had read. I am so glad we did. We crossed this bridge on the same day that we visited the Pont du Gard. It was our "Salute to the Great Bridges of France Day". We were advised by a young man at... More

If you are travelling the A75-A71 (Paris to Montpelier) you cannot miss this engineering masterpiece, but don't just drive accross it, take the exit off the highway and stop at the visitor centre, you will not be disappointed. In particular, take a few minutes to view the short film which shows the making of the bridge. If you are feeling... More

The first time you see the viaduct it takes your breath away, and continues to do so wherever it pops into view in the surrounding area. Superb views from surrounding hills and the visitor centre and Aire at the North side are good to visit. Looking up from the valley below gives you a real sense of the height of... More
