    Go to the Point Sublime and watch the vultures. Brilliant views down into the gorge from there. And a cafe.

    There is a point sublime overlooking the Tarn Gorges, remember reading about it on Google.

    Also according to French tourist information staff in Millau , the best side on view of the Bridge is from the Tower next to their building in Millau old quarter. Pics of bridge and a bit more info on Millau in a trip report from our holiday this year.

    While that is indeed true, it’s who the civil engineers were that is more pertinent.

    It's pretty impressive but hardly a 'must see'.

    I mean the new Mersey Gateway Bridge is also impressive and you can see more from it - like Runcorn & Widnes

    Actually the views of the Mersey and the old bridge are pretty good too...

    I was here just over a week ago: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/...16!4d3.2423609

    Then down into the gorge and back up onto Causse Méjean at La Malene heading towards Florac.

    Crossed the bridge a few years ago. Stayed in a chateau in the town. The following morning watched the bridge appear through the clouds. It looked as though the bridge was being lifted up and the cloud lowered. Life time memory of a stunning item of engineering.
    Wishing you everything you'd wish yourself, and more. Ride safe

    Can you still do the trick where you pay to cross and then stop at the viewing point then ride over the grass section separating the car park for the other direction so you go back for free?
