We were really looking forward to riding over this as part of a 9 day tour of France but it was a bit of an anti climax to be honest. It is far better to view it from the services before or to drive or ride under it with a camera. The plastic shields on the sides really obscured your... More

We drove down the A75 motorway with the soul purpose of seeing the "bridge in the clouds" luckily there were no clouds to spoil the view. What a fantastic sight as you approach this wondrous construction. We pulled into the viaduct services and walked up to the view point that overlooked the bridge and the huge valley that it spanned.... More

Town of Millau charming and within walking distance of the campsite. The campsite was very nice with plenty of pitches for motorhomes and the shower facilities very good.The only complaint was with the swimming pool

Bridge is amazing. Designed by a Brit, but built by the French. If travelling over it there is an "Aire" (rest area) just north of the bridge on the autoroute which gives a good view of it - and crossing over is well worth the toll (about 9 euro). But to fully appreciate it approach from the town of Millau.... More

Heading north we made a deliberate deviation to see the viaduct from ground level. The view and the history provided at the free tourist centre was welcome. Only then did plan A fall apart when Mrs Satnav on my Golf diverted me away from crossing the bridge itself (saving me €9, but there you are!). Next time perhaps! Tip: If... More

I do not usualyy get excited by civil engineering but this bridge is something else. It's long and high enough to give me vertigo. It is also beautiful. There is a toll to cross over it; 4.70€ for a motorbike. The visitor centre at the north end rest area is attracive, has a lot of touristy stuff but the café... More

Stunning views of the bridge are gained from the services just north of the bridge. Viewing area can be walked to from service area. Interesting description of the building work can be seen in free visitors centre. Costs 9 euros to cross bridge, but well worth it.

My husband wanted to drive over this bridge, the highest in Europe. We stopped at the information centre near the bridge. From there you can walk up a quite steep slope to get a better view of it and it certainly impressive and very pretty. At the centre there is also a display about the building of the bridge and...
