Stunning views and beautiful walk

Very nice walk to the top of this rock, where history speaks to you. And the views from above are stunning.

We visited this site as a part of a side tour from our South of France riverboat cruise. While picturesque and unique from a photographic/painting perspective, it was just average compared to the sometimes spectacular medieval cities and beautiful countryside vistas in this part of France.

Superb view from this landmark, and an interesting walk, too. The Burgundy landscape can be enjoyed in all its glory from up there.

We walked up this rock. We are not the fittest but most parts are not too step and it took 20 minutes. The view from the top is fantastic. Do not just sit there looking at the rock, go and climb it,it will be worth it!! Also this is free.

We have made the walk several times. In hot weather it can be arduous. The views from the top are well worth the effort. The museum was not so great but never the less interesting, especially for children. Go prepared with good footwear, water and even a snack. Plenty of wine growers in the area so some tasting might be... More

Hot on day, walked up 10 am better to do even earlier if can in the summer. It was about 30 degrees when we started. Relatively easy to walk up and be so easy in cool weather. View still fantastic though. Would have liked to have done the round trip of three

On arrival you see the rock from a distance and you park the car at the very foot of it. Do not be irritated, as the path first goes downhill and away from the rock, but you will find the entry after some 200 m on the left. Walking to the peak takes you some 20 - 25 minutes, the... More

Great walk up le solutre, there are anchoring points at the top for rock climbing/abseiling, there are different walking paths up the hill not just from the main car park. Museum is a little bit tired looking and the 'gardens' were non existing, bit like an excavation site. We didnt visit the coffee shop but i think there is one.... More

Good walk up to the top, with incredible views. The museum was full of school parties and we skipped it. The museum charges admission, the walks to the Rock and up it are free! The visitor centre was interesting too.
