Wonder of the Modern World

One of the most beautiful structures ever built. Not to be missed. Worth the effort to find this little corner of France.

This is just such a fabulous structure that it's worth a couple of hours detour if you are not already heading Millau direction. Good visitor centre with plenty of information (but not too much) and tourist tat that's not got extortionate price tags on them. The DVD for sale about the build is worth buying if you have an interest... More

This new structure is a fabulous solution for the traffic that use to be in the south of France. It's worth the stop to see the big marvel! :D

The video can be viewed in English if you ask at the desk. You can watch how they built this remarkable structure. The video is only 10 minutes long and after if you wish there is a trail to the bridge.

We stayed in Carcassone, hired a car, just so we could drive over the Millau Viaduct, which is part of the A75 / A77nautoroute from Paris to Béziers / Montpellier. The viaduct is an engineering marvel, it's beautiful to view and crosses over the river Tarn. We drove from the south, heading north, (the last exit / junction before the... More

How did anyone conceive and then build this magnificent bridge. We went well out of our way and missed some other places in France just to see and drive over this bridge. We left Toulouse and were heading for Perpignan, but detoured through the French countryside via Albi Carmaux and Rodez to make sure we experienced it. It was well... More

Drove over from the South and had a spectacular view of the bridge, very white, against a black and broody rain-filled sky. The crossing is over quickly, but there's a chance to see the whole bridge from a viewing point on the north side. 600 guys took 3 years to build it - unbelievable!

Come hell or high water, I was determined to see this bridge and drive over it. My trip to France had transmogrified into a kind of 'In the steps of Mr. Bean' journey. Having seen "Mr. Bean's Holiday" I had unconsciously made a point of following his journey, if only to prove to my students back in Australia that, travelling... More

It takes a bit of a drive to go see this absolute marvel of engineering, as it is located far from the trodden path deep in the French countryside. This is perhaps what makes it so special: with no big cities or any buildings nearby, the sheer scale and ingenuity of this viaduct commands your full attention. The central pillars... More

We were meandering through France on the way down to Italy for the F1 race, when one night in a hotel we noticed a picture of the Millau bridge on the back of a 500Euro note. I recalled Richard Hammond calling this structure the Bridge-in-the-Clouds. Quickly checking the map it was only a 2 hour detour from our notional route... More
