Visit Northwestern France coming in Normandy, in the pleasant city of Vernon. Who would have thought that such a little town would have so much to offer… Whether you like nature or culture, you will like your journey in Vernon.
Among the unavoidable to see in Vernon, start with the Castle of Bizy. Dating back to the 18th century, it is a Historic Monument nicknamed the Norman-french Versailles.
Another Historic Monument that is worth the detour is the Notre Dame collegiate, built between the 11th and the 16th centuries, it’s a gem of the medieval architecture. You also have to see the 16th century mill that is the emblem of the city. Strolling about the Art’s Park, have a glance to the last remain of the old fortress, the Archive Tower.

"Vernon is the nearest station to Giverny, 4 kms to visit Monet's garden, or Chateau Bizy. The trip was a comfortable one, as there's a slopping floor to wheel luggage inside the carriage to the baggage racks. Train was on time, clean, fast and smoothe. We did NOT travel at peak times - I recommend this, to avoid the more crowded times, when you have luggage. Taxis are plentiful at the St Lazare end but scarce in Vernon where you need to pre-book them. Don't miss the Saturday morning Farmers' Market in Vernon- it's really excellent. Other days we caught the trains on the same line to Rouen and Le Havre, which was very convenient. "
