The trip inside the elephant is a bit too long but it's a must try once in a lifetime. The machine is impressive. Tickets should be bought in advance as they run out very quick. We decided to do at the entrance and had to...More

The title sums it up. I love all things steampunk and Jules Verne, so this place was a must-see. Too bad that everything is exclusively in French, but I think that's something they will work on in the near future: this attraction has potential to...More

We had fun visiting and riding the elephant. While we hated leaving downtown and crossing the river, it was worth it. If you can fit it in, visit the machines and experience the amazing things they have done here.

We were lucky to get a ride on the elephant As we booked before we left the UK. Just a normal queue to see machines and the 3 level Marine carousel both of which are brilliant.

We crossed the pedestrian bridge to see the L.U. tower and to walk to the end of the island to take photos of the Loire. We encountered the elephant walking down the street toward us, bigger than you can imagine. It is definitely a sight...More

An unique way to present a city. All of the important landmarks are connected by a 12 km walking route that is marked in green on the free tourist map and also painted green on the street. Take two days to do it all. The...More
