Out of the overcrowded touristical areas, this short (20 min) metro trip will make you discover some 200 years of residence for French Kings. Very nice church, and the Donjon is very nicely rebuild. Only 8 eur entrance for a lovely visit.

Easy to get to by metro and perfect for a half day trip. Five stars for transportation but only three for information on site. We were told that some of the buildings did not open until 1 and almost left without actually confirming. Luckily we...More
