Start your weekend on the tourist circuit, by travelling through Vernon. Don’t miss the Collegiate Church of Notre-Dame, the Archives Tower and timber-frame houses. Take the opportunity to visit the market and shops. The town centre is truly buzzing on Saturday mornings!
Save your afternoon for visiting Giverny and entering the world of Claude Monet. The village and its shops, art galleries and museums are sure to delight you, but the real must-see is the painter’s home. A super-colourful house, lush gardens and the beautiful light on the water lily pond: you will be bowled over!
Château de Bizy
In the afternoon, head to Les Andelys, where you will find Château Gaillard: Richard the Lionheart’s unmissable fortress. Enjoy a different kind of experience with a virtual walk through Château Gaillard and Petit-Andely (leaving from the Château or the Tourist Office).
If you prefer a bit of exercise, go for a hike along the Mont Pivin trails, starting from the former Saint-Jacques hospital.
Make the most of Nouvelle Normandie’s lively evenings and packed cultural schedule. The cinemas in Vernon and Les Andelys are sure to delight fans of the seventh art. Or why not try your hand at bowling, laser tag or an escape room?
