My husband and I visited the Tour Jeanne d'Arc in Rouen as part of our honeymoon in June 2011. We took the SNCF train from Paris, and I believe the trip was just over an hour. The tower, just south of the train station, was easily accessible by foot. We paid a nominal fee to enter the self-guided tour through the tower which was set up like a museum in the first couple of floors.
Jeanne d'Arc has always been a role model for me, and it was so emotional for me to be in the same tower that Joan was kept in for the last few months of her life. I walked the same winding stone staircase that she did, and was able to see the wooden struts of the top of the tower that she likely gazed at.
The museum offered so much information in both English and French; miniture model of Rouen showing camps of troops, statues of Joan, many maps, portraits, a copy of the manuscript of Joan's trial . . . .so much more. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!
