I love this bridge and would never tire of visiting it. This year our trip took us under the bridge rather than over and it still took our breath away. It was a real wet and miserable day and the bridge was smothered in clouds but I managed to get a few good photo's. It is well worth making a... More

Unfortunately TripAdvisor won't allow a direct review of Cirque de Navacelles so I have included it as a side trip from Millau. Incredibly beautiful, especially when approached from the south. There is a nice visitors center at the top of the Gorge before you begin the precipitous descent to the village below. The road is basically one-way in some spots.... More

I made a detour to see it while going back to Paris from Carcassonne. Definitely worth it! What struck me most is a contrast: immense futuristic construction of white concrete hovers over a river gorge surrounded by green hills of most rustic French countryside! I can't even say if I thought it fit or not, liked it or not; I... More

We were travelling from Montpelier to Carcassonne and detoured to see this marvellous bridge/viaduct. Coming in to Millau there is a lookout point (not signposted), where you have an awe-inspiring view of the surrounding hills & the viaduct. We then drove to the information centre and watched a very informative DVD about the construction. What an achievement to build such... More

Rest area just by the bridge has a little museum/shop and cafe. You can walk up to look at the bridge. Impressive feat of engineering.

Fantastic views to the millau for miles around. The visitors centre underneath is well worth a visit if only to gaze up at this amazing feat of engineering!

Wow what a fantastic place to visit. We drove for around two hours to drive across the Viaduct. Our inspiration to do this came from a TV documentary on the construction of the viaduct and it looked amazing. We were pleasantly surprised with the terrific visitor centre with friendly and helpful staff. The walk up the hill behind the centre... More

This is a very impressive bridge that since it was built seems to be Millau's main attraction....despite the fact the local scenary is itself spectacular. All the same well worth a visit if in the area....

We went to the view point on the Boulevard first and the viaduc is as awe inspiring when you first see it as everyone claims. We then went to the visitor centre but did not take the tour because of timing, it is in French, and the exhibition, including the video, is as good as we wanted. The exhibition acknowledges...

We drove from Montpellier to Millau specifically to see this bridge and we were not disappointed. It is like flying over the valley when you drive across and a stunning sight from e ground. Visit the information center to watch how this engineering wonder was built.
