Viaduc de Millau Reviews
Years ago I watched a documentary on the contruction of this. Been obsessed since. It is truely one of the most spectacular bridges in the world more »
This is a must-do if you are driving in this part of the world. There is a visitor centre at the N end, with good parking, and from there a short trail to the viewpoint. It is well worth the climb... more »
On our trip to the South of France we passed this wonderful viaduct. After a short walk from the parking space, you have a beautiful view of the whole bridge. The museum is also worth visiting, very interesting to see all the engineering that went into constructing the bridge.
I have been wanting to visit for years! Finally, got to go and I wasn't disappointed. Now I can say I've seen it from above, driven over it and looked from underneath.
