  • For coming more in Millau, we don't not get tired to admire this magnificent work of art. A must see since the laces of the 110 D, the black Causse road.

  • 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. :)
  • Magnificent and spectacular viaduct just takes minutes to travel over, but it's worth turning off the A75 just to see the enormity from below.
  • 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.
  • Hugely impressive feat of engineering. Wish they could have engineered less obstruction to views of the gorge, but then I wasn't driving
