The chain of museums is sumptuous. Extraordinary works. There are almost too many, it borders on disgust, you have to take your time. Too bad we can't access Place St Pierre directly from the gardens!

Great tickets! Tips for your experience. Go straight to the security and head in, no lines! Once inside, go upstairs to the ticket booth and get your tickets. The audio guides are just inside. Enjoy!

Above all, the audio guide is worth it... Otherwise, you'll be a bit lost. Wonder of history.

Open air bus tour was great. A lot of area to cover in the heat, so the bus was ideal.

Everything was perfectly explained, we had no problems
