I have been interested in visiting this Viaduct since it was opened, I've also seen several tv shows explaining with maximum detail all the process of construction, I have to say nothing compares with the experience of stop in the rest area next to it...More

Whwn we visited in 2015, you could drivr on to the main veiwing 'aire' without paying. Now, however, the signs form Millau (if you're not on the autoroute) direct you to a parking area on the other side od a road (there's a tunnel) and...More

Amazing work of engineering. From a distance, this marvelous bridge looks like a thread going through a bunch of needles, litterally! Absolutely worth a visit to admire its beauty and ingenuity. Try driving across the bridge (costs 10 Euros) to really appreciate its beauty and...More

I have driven here several times and always stop to admire the view. Drawn by Sir Norman Foster but designed by a French engineer and built by a French construction company the Millau viaduct is superb. Stop to admire the view from underneath as well...More

During our stay in Millau we had a beautiful view on this bridge from our accommodation and from the village.

Worth seeing from underneath and from the tourist centre at bridge level. Driving over it only cost 10euro so not that expensive but good views.

A truly wonderful experience. The exhibition in the Aire is excellent telling exactly how the bridge was built with a film and other visuals in English and French. There is also an excellent exhibition on the surrounding countyside and it's culture.

Positive: - impressive contemporary engineering piece, it worths to stop and walk the 500 meters to the belvedere. Negative: - the pic nic area is awful! No shadow, few tables... in a place where so many people stop!

We had been told how fantastic the Millau Viaduct was and we wanted to see it for ourselves. Our opportunity came when we drove from Nice up towards The Lot. The road leading to the viaduct is spectacular in itself. It's a fantastic drive and...More

Barcelona to Millau by car (or minivan) is a 4 hour trip one way. Unless your group is totally into great engineering feats only I wonder if you would not like to extend your trip to include the (reconstructed) middle age... More
