We stumbled across this place by chance - and we're surprised to find it so interesting. The view from the dungon justifies the entry fee by itself. The audioguide is in French but ask for the leaflet in English. You need lots of energy for...More

Good morning Mikeym6372, If your excursion only includes the visit of the castle, then I personally think it's too expensive. If you decide to visit la Roche-Guyon, you'll find enough information at the tourist office... More
