Great feat of engineering considering age of bridge. There's a couple of places for photos and you can drive across. Incorporate a visit here with a drive around this area.

You can get the bridge after 20 minutes driving by car. It is beautifull, it is nice to cross it by foot, take some photos and after that enjoy an ice cream.

Beautiful viewsof the river valley. Definitely worth going over the bridge to see both sides. Steep approach so be prepared for a long walk / cycle (or take a motorcab).
