The Association « Les Partenaires du Tourisme - Vernon» (The Partners of Tourism - Vernon) proposes English-speaking visitors FREE GUIDED TOURS  of the right bank of the river in Vernon, including Château des Tourelles (12th century castle), the Old Mill (16th century mill)  and the remains of the medieval bridge. These three places deserve much more attention than the quick glance you may have while driving across the river. In addition to being extremely picturesque (they make up indeed THE postcard of Vernon !), these places are loaded with history both local, national and international. On your way to or from Giverny this one-hour vist can be a great moment. The visit (which is free, don’t forget it) will be guided by an English-speaking, fully-qualified guide.
