Deux Marines Museum and Tourist Train

Galerie Photos


We'll leave by tourist train for a tour of Briare, first admiring the Briare Aqueduct, whose 14 masonry supports were built by the Eiffel company. Until recently, it was the longest navigable aqueduct in the world. We'll also pass by the Town Hall and the Château de Trousse Barrière. We'll then head to the Deux Marines Museum and discover the history of the Loire and its canals: the spot that was once considered the most important waterway crossroads in France. Learn about the evolution of boating on the Loire and its sailors, the navigational techniques used, and the large variety of merchandise that was transported up and down the river at one time. We'll return to the ship on foot.
