We took the electric car tour for up to 8 persons (there were 6 today). I had written to ask if they had tours in English and was told to come today at 8am. But, it was in French and we only had the printed sheet in English. I think the 8am tour is the best, as we arrived before... More

I had no idea that this would be so large. One takes a 'train' (the kind of bus/train you see in seaside loctions) a 1.25 hour journey through salt pans of varying and beautiful colours, white, grey and salmon pink. It's a bit of a bumpy ride, and do hang on to your hats. But the ride is surprising in... More

The city of Aigues-Mortes is a little off the beaten track. Having seen quite a few medieval towns by now, I was prepared to be unimpressed, but from the moment I entered the walls, I was struck by what a pretty little town it was, and it has a fantastic array of specialty shops with a lot of beautiful hand-crafted...

It was a blistering hot day in southern France, so we decided that a ride in a train might go over better with our kids than wandering in the heat through the medieval city. We were able to drive up and take the next train. Unfortunately, there is no English commentary, and it's lucky that I had read about asking... More

Learning about salt priduction was interesting, but one hour in the train was overdoing it some. Our kids (5 & 6) took the trip in the train nicely, but for us adults not understanding all the french it stoped being interesting after 30 min. Interesting but stretched.

Aigues Mortes is a wonderful medieval city surrounded by a fort wall. It is unique and beautiful. The people here are very friendly, though French is the most spoken language. Food is superb. Shopping is limited.

They have been procing sea salt for a few thousand years...take the mini train tour tour. You will learn alot about the trade and histopry of the plce. Of couyse you have to buy the flower salt at the boutique afterward.

We got here just before noon and were disappointed to realize that we had just missed the last tour and wouldn't be able to stick around for the next one that was not until 2 hours later. As my photo for the hours posted shows, tours are 10:30, 11:00, 11:30, and then don't pick up again until 2:00, and are... More

Who would have thought that sitting on a little train driving around flat terrain looking at piles of salt would be so enjoyable? We didn't even get to see it before the harvest, so not even at it's best, but I really found the trip and the description of how salt is extracted and processed really interesting (I speak French)....

I found the visit worthwhile as you learn of how they take salt water to obtain salt, how it is cleaned and stored. You need to drive to the site, park and then purchase your ticket to board a little train that takes you around the marshes to see all the process. Tickets are sold with a specific departure time,...
