Carcassonne is worth a visit, and we love St Guilhem le Desert. Historical interest in Aigues Mortes, Beaucaire, Lodeve, Pezenas, Sommieres, Uzes & Nimes. The impressive Viaduc de Millau (approx 60 miles) is a large cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the River Tarn near Millau & is well worth a visit for all engineering enthusiasts. Designed by French bridge engineer Michel Virlogeux and British architects, Foster and Partners, it is the tallest vehicular bridge in the world, with one mast's summit at 343 metres — slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower and only 38 m shorter than the Empire State Building.
