As a family
If you're visiting Millau for a short two-day stay or just for a weekend, there are key places to visit. You must see the world-famous Millau viaduct. This 2,460-meter bridge is suspended 270 meters above the ground. It connects Clermont-Ferrand with Béziers and was inaugurated on December 17, 2004, after more than 13 years of construction. Tourists can admire this uncommon structure by going to the highway rest stop by car for a view from above and to the lower valley of the town of Millau for a view from below. It’s a great occasion for a nice walk. In the evening, take advantage of your stay to enjoy some local delicacies, including the famous Massif Central cheeses, like Saint Nectaire, at the Campanile Millau hotel-restaurant.
Slip on your walking shoes and head out to explore nearby attractions including the Grands Causses Natural Regional Park, home to more than 2,000 animal species. Fishing fans can enjoy their favorite activity in the heart of the Tarn's gorges. Sports lovers can take part in several activities, like biking, climbing and canoeing. Take advantage of your stay in Millau to visit the tourist attractions, including Sacré Cœur, Notre Dame de l'Espinasse Church and Les Halles. The historic city center is full of monuments and buildings with original and distinctive architecture.
Families stopping in Millau can take advantage of their stay by taking the children to explore the volcanoes at the Vulcania theme park. It has several shows and attractions for both children and adults to find out about the Puy-de-Dôme volcanoes. Why not also visit Micropolis, the insect kingdom not far from Millau? This fun museum is all about the various insects that inhabit the Auvergne and Midi-Pyrénées regions. For the more curious of visitors, the Graufesenque archeological site is a must-see. Located two kilometers from Millau, it’s a vestige of the Gallo-Roman city and also houses an ancient center of ceramic production. There are many ways for your family to discover Millau and its surroundings – for example,Toulouse, known as La Ville Rose (the pink city).

Top 3 gastronomic experiences in Millau

Panse de brebis farcie (haggis)

The city of Millau is part of the department of Aveyron and offers tourists a local specialty that doesn’t appeal to everyone: haggis. Very strong in taste, this rich dish is a must-try during your stay. In the area, you’ll find it on restaurant menus under the name “trenèls.” The stuffing consists of ham, pork belly and garlic. The broth, in which the trenèl cook slowly, is made with water, white wine, vegetables (carrots, celery, leek), thyme and bay leaf.

Aligot

It’s impossible to stay in the city of Millau, the Aveyron subprefecture, without sampling aligot, the famous potato purée with fresh, runny Tomme cheese. Aligot also traditionally contains cream, butter and garlic and is often served with a peasant sausage. The Aubrac monks served this dish to the pilgrims who came to Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle, so it’s an ideal dish to enjoy after a hike in the surrounding area!

Flaun de Millau

If you’d like to try a typical southern Aveyron pastry or dessert during your Millau vacation, we recommend that you try the famous “flaun de Millau,” a cheese tarte or, more specifically, a tarte made with recuite (a whey cheese obtained from making Roquefort) that’s eaten warm. This dessert is eaten mostly in spring and summer, but you may also find it in winter.

Millau Jazz Festival

Millau is a quiet, peaceful little town. But once a year since 1992, Millau livens up to host “Millau en Jazz,” a charity jazz festival aimed at helping people discover jazz. The key cultural event takes place every year in July and celebrates contemporary jazz and improvised music. For eight days in July, come and attend twenty or so concerts.

Bourse aux minéraux (Minerals Marketplace)

Another big event if you’re going to Millau during the summer months is Millau’s Minerals and Fossils Marketplace. It’s an international event that attracts the biggest collectors and lovers of rocks and minerals from around the world. This trade exhibition is usually held during a weekend in July and invites you to discover or rediscover the natural beauty of gems.
