Millau - with a view from a bridge

The name of the southern French town of Millau is synonymous with the name of the tallest vehicle bridge in the world, the Millau Viaduct. One of France's most spectacular sights, the bridge, designed by architect Norman Foster, has brought this historic town to the attention of visitors from every corner of the globe. Many of these visitors, however, marvel at the bridge, but fail to take time to explore the delightful town below. And Millau has plenty to offer.

A thriving town, providing all amenities

Millau is a thriving, vibrant place with excellent shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Then there are schools, doctors, banks and all amenities on hand. Street markets set up on Wednesdays and Fridays, so if you prefer shopping in the time honoured French fashion, grab your basket and get down town!

Enjoy Millau's festivals and sporting events

There's plenty going on in Millau too. Various festivals take place throughout the year. If jazz is your thing, be sure to visit in July! The town's also got sporting events and facilities for all ages.

Discover the heritage of Millau

As well as its famous bridge (which is, admittedly, the first thing you'll notice), Millau has quite a few sites worth visiting. There are no fewer than eleven listed historical buildings in the town, so if you enjoy exploring the heritage of old French towns there's plenty to keep you busy. Choose from archaeological sites, old washhouses, churches, belfries, an ancient mill, a Roman road - Millau's intriguing history is all there to trace.

Leisure and sporting activities on offer

From a base in Millau you'll find lots and lots of different sporting and leisure activities with which to fill those sunny summer days. Mountain sports like climbing, potholing, mountain biking, caving and hiking are all possible here. Then there are lakes and rivers where you can relax and enjoy fishing and water sports. Golf courses, horse-riding stables and even Go Karting are all available nearby too.

Go wine tasting and explore Templar villages

If you're not keen on being quite so active, why not get along to a local vineyard to taste the wines, or take a trip to the Templar villages of the region? The lively city of Montpellier is within reach for day trips and well worth a visit.

How to get there

Millau is easy to find. To arrive by air you can fly to Montpellier or Rodez direct from the UK. You can also travel by train to either of those cities, and connect to local services to reach Millau itself. If driving, and a car really is necessary to get the best from this wonderful area of France, you'll find the town on the D911, near the A75 motorway.
