Visit a Medieval Castle - 2 hours*

Chateau de Vincennes wiki.jpg

Have you ever imagined life in a castle ?  Come on my tour to learn about the medieval castle - its construction, its features,  its defenses.  This kid-friendly tour will please the whole family!  We will visit a real castle located 20 minutes from Paris, built from 1360 to 1410.
We will take the drawbridge over the moat & enter through the main tower.   We will visit the keep & its residential area.  We'll make the rounds on the wooden terrace which commands views for miles around.   We will climb a dizzying spiral staircase to the top of the castle & see the battlements with its bell tower, just like the soldiers who once guarded the castle.  Then we descend into the dungeons & servant's quarters.  I will provide the historical context to help you & your kids learn about life in the Middle Ages!
