France Miniature

Visiting France and no time to see everything? Come to France Miniature, where you will be oohing and aahing at 116 historical monuments of France, exact replicas built on a 1/30 scale. I don't know why I didn't know about this place before, I don't think they publisize it as much as they should. Its a great way to spend the day with your children, there is even a mini fun park available for children above 6 years old. 

We took a car ride and was stuck in traffic for a good hour and a half, but without that it shouldn't take more than 40 mins to get here from Paris. I'm pretty sure there are tour buses who organize group visits, but I'm not such a big fan of tours. Tickets are not cheap, €19.50 for adults and €13.50 for children. I assume that this is only because it is expensive to construct and maintain the mini monuments. You will be awed at the accuracy of the details! 

There is a restaurant on site which we didn't try, and a cafeteria that sells sandwiches and pizzas. However, I highly recommend that you bring your own food, they provide picnic tables for people who do so. Pick a nice sunny day if you have the luxury to do so, everything is outdoors so you definitely do not want to come in the winter months.
