“Worth the long drive to get there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

We drove from Montpellier to get to the Millau Viaduct which took almost 90mins but was a lovely drive and well worth the wait. When we finally arrived, it was just awesome. We drove across and then stopped at the viewing point for a good hour just to catch the views and get some pics. Then onto Millau village (having paid the hefty 9 Euro toll) so we could see the bridge from underneath. There is a small visitor centre right under the bridge and allows for some amazing views. In terms of the actual visitor centre, that wasn't overly impressive. Mainly a souvenir shop with some models on how the bridge was built etc.

Definitely worth the visit!

“must to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Absolutely must to see. The best view is from the north end. Amazing view from the top of the hill where you can overview the viaduct and the valley. Plus I would suggest to drive under the viaduct - the view is awesome!!! My two teenage sons were really impressed. Plus near there are lots of beautiful villages and places to visit. a definitely must to see.

“this is a must for anyone with a passion for architecture and construction, and buildings!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

My husband is an architecture freak and loved this !

We stayed in Millau, and arrived here from Montpellier, the drive up the motorway was amazing, the views along the road which leads to the Viaduct are amazing! I have been to the Grand Canyon and this is a pretty good likeness although on a smaller scale, it is a must!

“A bit disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

I drove out to Millau from Toulouse because I wanted to drive over the famous viaduct. In all the TV documentaries it looks spectacular and, indeed, as you drive up to it through beautiful scenery it really is breathtaking and very beautiful. Underneath it there is quite an interesting display and gift shop. However, actually driving over it is a bit underwhelming. There are barriers on either side, no doubt to stop people getting out of their cars and jumping off, so you can't actually see the view. You also have to pay to go across, and I went across it in both directions. If you are in a coach you would no doubt have a fabulous view, but in a car, you can't see anything. All the views of it on TV are filmed by helicopter, so you see it from above. That being said, I don't regret the day's drive. We drove through some lovely countryside and great scenery, but all in all it was a bit disappointing.

“Is it really that impressive?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

This site it rated top site in Millau, but I am not sure that it is really Worth it unless you are a bridge fanatic and the still I have seen much more impressive bridges. Excessively expensive at nearly 10 Euro to cross it!
