Encountered the viaduct on the trip south to the Languedoc. Unlikely interruption In what is a toll free journey south of Clermont-Ferrand. Not much to add to other reviews except this is a sight worth seeing. Certainly if you are towing a van it beats what is a steep detour down into the valley and via Millau. Downside would be...

The Millau Viaduct is a stunning example of the ability of people to build a structure that is not only functional but superbly beautiful. We went out of our way to see this great engineering feat after reading about it for years. As you cross the bridge going north there is a look out and small visitors center. Definitely one... More

We crossed the bridge during our motorcycle tour of France and we were really impressed. It was quite a windy day and our fully loaded bikes can react badly in cross winds so the genius of the side screens to deflect it is wonderful. People need to consider that before moaning they spoil the view! The exhibition is really interesting... More

Stopped off on way south at the visitors centre before driving over. Absolutely amazing. Driving back northwards was actually better because you see more on what is then a downward slope. If you get the chance, don't miss it!

My husband has wanted to see this bridge for quite some time, so we made the excursion to see it between Cologne, Germany and Madrid, Spain. Took quite a while to drive there from Montpellier train station, but coming over that last crest and actually being on the bridge was something else! Visitor center was closed, but you could still... More

This bridge never ceases to amaze and amuse us. It's so far above the ground that the cars and motorbikes look like toys. This time we drove under it and it really is as good as it looks.

This 2 km bridge must be experienced. In fact, if driving to or from the south of France, the whole La Meridienne motorway, commencing near Montpellier and up to Clermont Ferrand, though the Massif Central, is a must do! Amazing scenery, driving at times up to 4000 feet AMSL. The climax is the bridge itself, quite unique and at its... More

The Millau Viaduct is well worth a visit. Before going into the visitors centre take a while to stand underneath this construction and marvel at the achievement of the build. It has two visitors centres, one is situated under the viaduct - be warned it does not open until 10am on the dot. The film that is shown explains how... More

Always wanted to go over this viaduct it didn't disappoint. The view was brilliant. I don't know how people dare to paraglide off it

The Aire du Viaduc on the northern side of the bridge is a pleasant spot with the best view of the bridge from below. It has displays and information about the bridge, a shop and cafe.
