Take the A75 to embrace the landscape glories of Aveyron, Midi Pyrenees, and Languedoc

The drive across this lovely bridge is well worth it. Stop by at the viewing point on the north side of the Tarn Valley - and be amazed by the sheer size of it. Drive further north to see bridges still being constructed. Enjoy the true marriage of the joys of driving and the beauties of the French Landscape. Designed by Norman Foster, it is higher than the Eiffel tower above the river Tarn
