Really nice old village/town that still has a lot of its old buildings, churches etc. The prize item is the famous bridge which was painted by Monet. There is an old Castle high up above the bridge but I did not have time to visit...More

Beautifull old town, with nice views! You have to pay to get in the castle at the top. Monet painted some paintings here. The restaurant across the street was good too.
