At Millau Viaduct, drive across the tallest bridge in the world, with a mast height of 343 m (1,125 ft) above the base of the structure. Consistently ranked as one of the great engineering achievements of all time, this cable bridge spans 2.5 km (1.5 mi) of the Tarn River and valley. Driving over the bridge brings you extreme views of the river. Built in 2004, it has the 12th highest bridge deck in the world, with 270 m (890 ft) between the road and the ground below. Tours of the facilities help you enjoy the best parts of this modern bridge. Beware that there can be traffic jams during peak travel times.

  • best bridge in the world... amazing experience ! The structure of bridge and architecture is great work. Norman foster is one of the greatest architect in the world. A lot to inspired from him !🙇👏✌😇
  • Impressive and quite a nice photo op. Worth paying for.
  • The experience of actually Crossing this bridge was phenomenal and one to enjoy and share with others.
  • I agree with Beatriz and Jackie that the view is both stunning and breathtaking and whatever other superlative you can imagine. The deck seemingly floating up in the clouds adds to the spectacle whether you view it from top or from way down below. Norman Foster has done a wonderful job with his remit but my hero here is the bridge designer,Michel Virlogeux, the famous French Engineer who is the true creator of this structure and many others around the world.
