Would have loved to see more of the inside of the palace. Happy though we were able to visit part of it via the tourist office entrance and the visit was free.

Considered as the first of the Loire‘s castles with its wide renaissance façade surrounded by the polygon turrets, it was built on the hill overlooking the center of the old town, the Republic Square and a big park. There is an avant-garde museum and a...More

The exterior is beautiful but the interior is renovated and very modern as this building is in current use.

The former ducal palace is now the tourist information site and a small city museum. If there are "ducal" rooms to see, I guess we must have missed them.

My niece was married here. The building itself is very grand and the decor inside beautiful. The grounds surrounding the Palais are carefully tended and colorful with beautiful flowers - a great place for photographs. Nevers church nearby is also worth a visit.

The palace looks interesting from the outside, and surprisingly (I thought), visits are free. But for those who visited the towers in la Rochelle, this is certainly not playing in the same league. There are exhibitions, but unfortunately no thematic one on the palace's history....More

There was nothing really special about this place; no unique architecture that stood out and no artwork that was nice to see. It was bland on the outside and the town it is in is boring with not much to do.

First impressions of this wonderful building and its setting are hard to describe, but magnificent springs to mind. Sadly little prepares the visitor for the dreadful treatment of the interior now devoted to the humdrum of municipal government. Little wonder there is no charge to...More
