Fascinating look at the history of this historic town and region. Highly recommended. Get a 'town pass'! more »
Nice tour to listen and learn about the peak of Provins and merchants. You are provided with a headset and listen to the story of each exhibit. It's well maintained, clean and you'll learn something here. Might not be too much fun for the kids though.
Authentic medieval village. Well kept and in great state. Not visiting ruins but an actual live village with inhabitants and school. Managed to keep a great balance between the history and daily life.
