Imagine what it must have been like when it was optional. This is one of these structures that you can look at and think of the past. History is a great subject.

Take your picknick basket and enjoy the park, the seine and the historic setting. No visite possible, but more to set, Lieke gold watchtower. When the weather is good, there will also be some sailing on the seine.

Hello,my best friend lives in Vernon and I never took a tour from Paris to there. Vernon is a small city you can buy a train ticket there from Paris(80km,40min by train )aprox €13/each way and you can discover the town alone.
