  • It is the boat that helped to put battery to Napoleon! Of course, the English kept him. Good! (Not the battery to Napo, the fact that it has been preserved!). Huge tour of all the bridges. One sinks slowly in the boat. Confined atmosphere, details of life and trades on such a boat, all there is. Attention must be documented to enjoy all there is to see. Otherwise, the look will be superficial. Gag: tap the guns, most are plastic reproductions. Remember to lower the head! Audio guide in English only. GRRRR!
