  • Mammoth feat of engineering, featuring views of the town of Millau. Impossible not to be fascinated, embodies the French grandeur of the third millennium. The view from above is great, too bad not being able to stop.

  • A very nice book, impressive to see. Majestic. I love. We went on deck down South and we went under the bridge on our return

  • I enjoyed driving over this viaduct so much, I turned around and went back. Stunning views from the bridge (not that you are allowed to stop) and from underneath if you take the guided tour bus, or visit the visitor centre on the Southern side of the valley. It's right under the bridge. They have a photographic exhibition of the construction as well as lots of other fascinating information.
  • A magnificent feat of engineering and I was really looking forward to using this new bridge to avoid the chaos in Millau on our journey back to the UK. Unfortunately, my wife has a mortal fear of heights and would not cross over the bridge in our car. I was forced to use the old route through town and on a busy Saturday at peak holiday time. It took us an eternity to get through Millau - but at least she was happy. :(
  • What can you say ! 800 miles drive to the most amazing thing I've ever seen! Emotional place after a long drive with my dad! A must! A must! A must! !! Google for pictures, , n YouTube for top gear! Ha ha
  • Truly, one of the "Wonders of the World!" (Made by the hand and ingenuity of mankind, through the inspiration of God Almighty!) I love this beautiful and magnificent bridge so much, and I hope to one day have my "Family Reunion" right on the middle of it! (Or perhaps we will all be SPIRITS - flying around and above!) Vive le Viaduc de Millau!
  • Very impressive ! The Viaduc are beautiful and the countryside too. The town is nice. I recommended to visit this place.
