It is impossible to imagine the size of the bridge until you are underneath it, even better than driving over it. Its not a natural wonder but it is a wondrous achievement. A small visitor centre with ample car parking lets you take in the view. Although you might see more than you bargained for.

Impressive and awe inspiring. Great to park up and walk around the site with some fab photo opportunities and views although not well suited to pushchair or wheelchair visitors due to steep rugged path.

Saw this viaduct from every angle...it really is truly awesome. Well worth the toll to cross it, but go down to the villages under it and stand and look up at it

This is the tallest bridge and one of the greatest engineering accomplishments in the world. Well worth stopping to see this. There is a steep path climbing the hill to the top for a great view of the bridge. There were plenty of older folk doing the climb up and down, so it's not too bad. Our calves were stills... More

Stopped here on the way to the South of France, and it is certainly worth the detour. We had a 5 and 10 years old with us and they were fascinated by its scale and structure, especially being able to drive over after looking. The views down to Millau are spectacular. The visitor center was very well laid out, with... More

Up there with the every best modern attractions. the scale is mind boggling for a 'bridge'. Costs about €10 to cross the 2.9km colossus. It is well worth the diversion to check out the visitor centre under the bridge. I would have liked a bit more engineering stuff on display. Town of Millau has been relieved of 5 hour traffic...

...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

Spend time in the visitors' center and take the time to watch the video of the bridge's planning and construction...
