  • Apart from the Tour de L'Horloge this town is quite unremarkable I guess we have been spoilt by the beautiful towns in Provence and the Ardeche but I would not bother a detour if this is not on route  more »
  • Good time to see if you're in the neighborhood! At the heart of the city centre! Visit fast and cheap!

  • I'm not mounted at the top of the Tower, but I visited inside and found it beautiful, very well laid out. It is a beautiful place, and the expo on animals was as exciting as fun - and free ;-)))
