  • The turn of the ramparts is really pretty. It allows to have a view of the entire city and to learn the history of the walls and the city thanks to the numerous explanations throughout the visit. Plus, it's free for 25 years!

  • (Paying) beautiful ballad about 1.6 km on the ramparts of acute dead including the Tower of Constance. We got a great view of the city and the surroundings (salins of midi and the Grande Motte). The Ballad is really pleasant, however, having made the early autumn I imagine in July August this must be crowded. Of more if you fear the heat prefer rather early morning (although the opening takes place only at 10: 00) or the late afternoon Attention the walk is all the same a little physical (many markets during the crossings of some towers) If you have a children at a young age.

  • Beautiful historic town..the Crusaders castle... where they launched from apparently... inside the castle walls is a quaint city.. restaurants, bars, shops hughend to touristy stuff..art galleries....needs more than just one day to explore... get good walking shoes
  • Loved this quiet little town, great shops, good restaurants, and the Camargue experience was definitely worth a visit.
  • Good value for money. Great views of the city and cool breeze in the hot weather!
  • Great history and walk along the ramparts. Take enough time to read and listen to the exhibits along the way.
  • Great views of the town and surrounding areas. Worth the admission.
