“The word 'awesome' is overused, but...”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

...but it's the most appropriate one for the Viaduct. You can't see much driving across it (which is expensive), but find a road that passes underneath, ideally to the Visitor Centre, and you'll see why. The Gorge is so wide that it looks like they've built a road high in the sky, just for the hell of it. This is the only piece of architecture I know that's comparable to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, or Shakespeare's King Lear.

Spend time in the visitors' center and take the time to watch the video of the bridge's planning and construction...

“Stunningly Beautiful!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

In our recent trip to Italy and France, this was a site that we had on the must-see list, and it didn't disappoint. Driving through the area without seeing this viaduct is like going to San Francisco and not seeing the Golden Gate Bridge. Be sure to stop at the museum for a short film on the design and building of this work of art. We also went through Millau, and it looked like a great place to spend a day or two.

“amazing!”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

It's the tallest bridge in the world. Simply remarkable. You can learn how it was built and how long it took by watching a very short film inside.

“Astonishing construction”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

We first saw it many km. ahead, when descending one of the hills in our A-75 journey from Clermont Ferrand to Barcelona. Impressive at this first sight but getting better when getting closer. Highly recommendable to exit the motorway and take some photos.
