Breath taking views from the open spaces at the visitors centre. The most spectacular design and construction of a viaduct crossing a huge valley. The best view and experience when crossing the viaduct in the car is from the direction, North to South. The viaduct actually is on a rise and bends to the left. Quite an unforgettable experience.

We stayed in a hotel which had a good view of the bridge from the grounds. Next morning we drove over the toll motorway - it only takes about 3-4 minutes but it is an experience - Humber Bridge in Yorkshire is more impressive across the river!

Many have written about the greatly impressive feat of engineering that is the Millau Viaduct, but our visit - on a very hot August afternoon - was spoilt by the disgraceful toilets at the Visitor Centre. The bridge was finished in 2004, so the Visitor Centre must be about that age as well. However, rather than making the Visitor Centre... More

I have wanted to visit this bridge (coming from an engineering family with a grad civil engineer brother) and have travelled over it on google maps only! But the real thing is clearly better. From the south it comes up unexpectedly so have the camera ready asap. The display is also good and in English and French. The video can... More

As an Engineer I wanted to visit this do dragged the family along.....simply awesome, paid 13 Euros for a family ticket hides tour, well worth it. Stunning views underneath at the viaduct visitor centre & from the aires services on the A75. I just need to correct some reviews however, it was a French Engineer that designed the bridge, Sir...

Stunning views as you drive towards the Viaduct. At the tourist centre very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Clear and easy to use audio guides available. I might have missed the 10 min film at the end of our tour if one of the guides hadn't told me that it was in English. Interesting facts and information. Both grandsons 11 and... More

Just a must have in the Aveyron region. A good tip is to stop at the Motorway rest area just before the Viaduc, and enjoy the local food. Otherwise the view is just Magnifique !

Lots of vantage points around the town and in the hills on the south side of town. Also try the view from the Aire (but this is on the peage side so you will pay the toll to cross the bridge). Visitor centre beneath the bridge (on road to Roquefort) is also worth a look.

The Millau Viaduct is something to see at least once! It allows you to drive easily into the town and see views of the area from both sides.
