    If you go to Narbonne, this visit. It's beautiful to see and discover. And see also the Dungeon.

    We thought there would be much more to see in Narbonne and therefore we have no city-pass (pass monumental) taken, but that may do your best do. Next to the Bishop's Palace, the Cathedral and the horreum is there en. not so much more to see, unless you pay. And for all of this Bishop's Palace, you should pay in each case.

    Must see. This whole complex is beautiful. We bought the day pass which gave us access to this and several other museums - it was definitely worth it. Climbing up the donjon tower is great too as long as you don't mind stairs and heights.

    In spring of 2017 it was closed due to repaires/ restorations, but the outside is accesible and very cool.

    Great collection and amazing sights! (41 m height).

    Art, architecture and archaeology combine to offer a sight that should offer something for everyone?

    Lovely old building with several good museums (art & archaeology) within. Look on the square outside for the exposed section of the Via Domita Roman road.
