  • Not a lot to say about this location really! A bridge or viaduct- whatever you want to call it, really is a great piece of engineering but is still just a bridge!!! It's a nice stop off if your on rou...  more »
  • We planned to visit the bridge as a key part of our tour of the region and we were really glad we did. Coming from Rodez in the north we first saw in from high up on the plateau and much later from ou...  more »

  • Beautiful area. What a pleasure to discover the bridge on your own. It is a huge difference if you look at the picture or physically there.. under the bridge and cross this beautiful bridge. Great experience. Very pricy to cross. :)
  • One of the greatest men's work done in France in the late 20th century. Fantastic technical realization done by Vinci group. Do not hesitate to have a tour at the bridge's small museum. When you arrive from the South...it seems you are flying...fantastic !!!
  • I would give it 5 stars as I thought is was absolutely amazing. What a piece of engineering and so imposing yet stunning. The girls in the family were not quite as impressed, they liked it but were not as much as the boys. Driving over the bridge is great but take a look at it from underneath and drive to Peyre for really great views of it and an appreciation of how big it really is.
  • Imposing such a bridge over a deep valley. It is expensive to cross it by car with a caravan (15,1€), but not only from the valley seen, but also when driving over it, it is an overwhelming experience!
  • High, magnificent and beautiful. We managed to navigate to few brilliant spots to take pictures from different angles
