During our stay near Paris Disneyland, we took a side trip by car to this wonderful Medieval village about 30 minutes from our hotel. What a lovely surprise! We enjoy walled Medieval villages and this one was outstanding. The churches are ancient and beautiful. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Caesar's Tower is worth taking a tour where... More

A very small fortified town that takes you back to the medieval period. Was intrigued by the several food item prepared from rose petals. Dont forget to shop there as the variety is enormous right from the rose ice creams, to wines, jams, honey, candies, liquers.... The toy train that takes you around gives a complete view of the town... More

If spending the afternoon outdoors is your thing, go to Provins to see the Eagles' show. Totally worth it!

We visited Provins on a lovely Saturday in September. Having read helpful reviews on Trip Advisor we went straight up to the Tourist Office and parked there and then walked into the old, high part of this beautiful medieval town. We knew there was a market on Saturday but discovered that it is in the lower part of town, the... More

Whenever we are in Paris we try to take a couple of day trips outside of the city. This year we went to Proving which is about 75 minutes from Gare De lest. It is a really interesting old town with a great castle that is well worth the climb up the hill and inside the castle. The view from... More

Provins, a town of medieval fairs is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.There are abundant reminders of the town's history; the fortified wall, Tithe Barn, Underground Galleries and Caesar’s Tower. These monuments are scattered amongst small, stone and timber-framed buildings. We attended 3 performances, the first was a demonstration of medieval weaponry, a display of jousting and the medieval siege engines.... More

There are many interesting little shops and eateries here. Lots of lovely interesting flower baskets and tubs, Its well worth... More
