On our last day in southern France we left Carcasonne and headed east toward Narbonne then north on the A75 towards Clermont-Ferrand where we would spend the night. Our route took us across the Millau Viaduct, the tallest bridge in the world completed in 2004 with its highest tower measuring 1,118 feet. The Millau Viaduct is a harp-type cable-stayed bridge...

EPIC! I have travelled over 400km though the France to see this viaduct. It was worth it. Fantastic piece of engineering. There is a visitors centre on A75 just beside the viaduct. toilets, bar, info centre etc. Big parking and viewpoint just few steps away. Great photo opportunity. A must see place.

Visitor center very interesting was second time for us and view of the bridge awesome. Well worth a visit if you are that way on way back we drove over the bridge and was wonderful nice blue sky and sun took some amazing photos. When driving over you you can appreciate the engineering but the bridge is very elegant. Best... More

And this is BIG. I had seen a program on TV about the making of this bridge. Wow, it was just as amazing driving over, under and around. Not very far from Montpellier and en-route to Limogue. If you like large, amazing structures, then this is a must see. There are museums at both ends of the bridge. At the... More

We travelled right across France to see the bridge and it was so worthwhile. A magnificent feat of engineering and spectacular to view from a distance and astounding to see from underneath. Michel Virlogeux and Norman Fosters' bridge is Entente Cordiale at its best.

This is a truly stunning engineering and architectural feature. The visitor centre is worth the visit to gain an appreciation of the scale of the design and construction complexity.

If your route takes you anywhere close to this engineering marvel, you should take a detour and see it -- and cross it. Stop at the visitor center, but then drive down through the town of Millau and see the bridge from several different vantage points. From a distance it looks like a fine piece of art made of lace,...

We have crossed this wonder of engineering many times and are always gob-smacked by it. The best approach is going south. You cruise round a long bend on the autoroute and there in the distance is a sight to remember. Just amazing, and no wonder the French are proud of it. (Why are the French so good at spectacular bridges?... More

I love bridges and this is one of the most beautiful I have seen in person. It was the main attraction for our trip to the midi-Pyrennes and it did not disappoint! An amazing architectural wonder.
