We were bowled over by Bibracte - the scale and beauty of the place, the scattered reminders of a great civilisation (leaving plenty to the imagination but with enough to spark it). The museum itself really comes alive and also has a great restaurant recreating...More

Bicracte is a fantastic place if you are interested in archeology. We spend a full day in an around the museum. Beside the museum itself you can do a walking tour to explore the different exvacation sites. Highly recommended also with kids.

I loved this place as I am a total Time Team geek, so to see live archeology was so exciting. We took the bus up to the top and I would advise substantial footwear as I had flip flops and didn't appreciate the terrain, so...More
