This bridge is a sight to see and the French have made it easy to see it in all its glory. There is an aire conveniently placed on the north side of the bridge off the A75 where it is free to park. Here you will find viewing areas, a visitors centre giving an insight to the construction of the... More

Didn't go into visitor centre but was great to stand under. However drove around for ages trying to find it. Get coordinates off web before attempting to get there by sat nav.

Anywhere else would complain bitterly about a modern motorway bridge being built across a beautiful river valley. Not here. This stunning building is fantastic to look at wherever you are in millau and great to drive over. NB it's a toll.bridge and will cost about 10 euros to cross.

The Millau viaduct is very impressive from under and over, there are two visitors centres but really they just give you a chance to read about the construction and to view the bridge. We did take a kayak under it which was great fun but a little difficult to find. It was 16 eu for around 2.5 hours including the... More

Drove over this amazing bridge whilst travelling from Spain back to the UK. What an amazing sight! Got lots of great pictures as we stopped off at viewing point which includes a car park, info centre and cafe. Bit of a climb to the top but was definitely worth it. Must see if you are travelling in the area!!

You may have to go out of your way to visit this massive bridge over the River Tarn but it is an imposing structure to see live. Credited as being the tallest bridge on the planet it isn’t the highest. It’s all a matter of definitions, not that it matters. The village of Peyre is a tiny speck in the... More

You see it on TV and you look at in magazines. Until you actually travel over it and then see it from the river you just cannot appreciate the size and grandure of this structure. It is well worth the price of a ticket to get a guide to talk about the structure. A well spent hour.

The viaduc is an absolute marvel of modern engineering and something the French should be rightly proud of. There is car access to the aire at the north end from Millau, and it is well worth a visit. It is about 8 miles from Millau centre but easy to find. There is a really interesting display of the construction (2001-2004)... More

I had wanted to see this bridge for YEARS! It was worth the wait...we drove over it coming from the South (incredible experience) and then we stopped at the tourist centre. Stunning, impressive, magnificent! Well worth going out of your way to visit it.
