“Poor bus stop sign, number 132 from Lyon”

Cite medievale de Perouges

Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

I started this day trip in a mess because of the poor bus stop sign.  Bus 132 goes north from Pont Guillotiere. The first  sheltered bus stop is for local businesses. The second one 20 metres north is for 170. How about 132? You will probably miss the little blue pole like me and the group of tourists missing it just like me. I ran to the tourist office to ask, even they told me to wait at  the local bus shelter. Do take a look at my photos. Read about Perouges from other reviewers. Beautiful.

If you are in the area you should stop by Perouges. Especially if you are into well preserved medieval villages. Narrow, winding cobblestone streets and a large square with an ancient tree in the center. A step back in time.

A worthwhile diversion for the day - or maybe half day. This medieval village is a a wonder to walk through with many of the buildings being preserved just as they were centuries ago (at least from the outside). Amazingly, many of the buildings are still in use as residences and businesses. If you have any interest in how people lived in medieval times, but want to see something different to the usual Gothic church, this is definitely worth a visit. One of the top highlights of our river cruise.

This was a cute village. Luckily there was a medieval fair going on so there was more to see. Lots of people were dressed up and music was playing. We walked the town then sat outside a cafe and had a beer and crepe. It was a good quick rest spot from the drive from Dijon to Geneva.

This is such a gorgeous village, and if the harpist is playing, then you'll have a bonus. It's fascinating to see how the shutters for the windows are different from the usual French style: The shutters open downwards so that goods for sale could be displayed. Stepping back in time is easy with the sensitive work done to keep as much as possible from the by-gone days. Walking on the stones becomes a challenge at times - good 'exercise' to keep the ankles strong (but don't let that put you off - it's not 'super hard').
