Because we had visited Chateau du Rivau the day before, and retained our entrance tickets, we only paid 6euros50, which was a bargain compared to the prices charged by some chateaux. The guide book has a piece of plastic inside the cover, which you swipe over various exhibits which then describe to you, in your own language, some of the history of each area. It's really quite novel and young visitors must love it. For lovers of history, like us, it was a very worthwhile visit, especially as so much of it is tied up with the English. At the end of the visit we took the lift down into the medieval village of Chinon itself, which is absolutely charming, and worth going to for itself without going into the Fortresse.
