  • To make the most of it driver over, under and stop at the visitors centre for a great view. Worth having a guided visit.

  • Canoeing under the viaduc is a good way to see it. I can recommend Canoescapade Eau-vive in Comprégnac.

  • A brilliant construction with a superb visitors centre, and a pretty village nearby. Well worth the visit.
  • Breathtaking piece of engineering with a British award-winning Architect designing a bridge that matches this gorgeous part of France. Has to be seen to be appreciated!
  • Stunning bridge, engineering marvel. Worth visiting. However we ended up paying tolls both ways when coming from Montpellier. Please take the exit right after the bridge to avoid the toll.
  • The Millau Viaduct! It is so tall and the world's tallest bridge! I want to go to France! It would cost €342,456 for a big ride!
  • Fun to see once. We stayed in Creissels within view of the bridge and only crossed it when leaving the area. Gives it a bit more drama this way.
