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

Well worth a visit, go to the visitor centre which is very informative.just stand under the structure and marvel at it. Also go to Peyre about 5 miles away, stunning little village in mountainside and you get a great view of the viaduct from there

We drove from the Dordogne, I had planned to drop off the hire car at Perpignan and take the the TGV direct to Charles DeGaulle airport. I have been across the Millau Viaduct twice now and it still amazes even though the second time had drizzle (notoriously fickle weather in the area). Make sure to see the TV program by... More

We weren't planning on driving over the bridge but we sure are glad we did. Amazing views and neet lookouts for photo opportunities. 10/10 would cross this bridge again.

We were pleased we took the time to visit this truly beautiful bridge and to see the story of its construction through displays and film. There are 2 visitor centres- you can choose to drive over the bridge at a cost of EUR 7.50 and stop off at the "upper" visitor centre on the northern side. You can walk up... More

It was such a great expirience. It is free (at least it was when we were there) and it is amazing. Engeneering spectacle.

Tallest bridge in the World. Highest bridge deck in the world. Completed in 2004 at cost of 400 million euros. Opening ceremonies presided over by then French President Chirac. Best views from below found at village of Peyre.

Crossed the Viaduct several times now and always impressed. Approach heading South on A75 (toll free motorway. Viaduct is NOT Toll free) you see the bridge for quite some time in the distance, but approach heading North and bang your on top. Driving to/from Spain (Med) or South of France on route it's a must see...... If you arrive during... More

Having stayed in Toulouse overnight after a late arrival from the UK, we approached the bridge from the town of Albi (intending to do Albi/Millau/Beziers/Carcassone/Toulouse. There are 2 approaches to the viaduct from Albi; we used the south west approach that took in Saint Afrique and we were not disappointed. This drive is of itself very scenic, but when the... More
