  • Was very surprised how much there was to see, well worth the visit, please we went out of high season, not too many people.

  • The abbey of Cluny is beautiful and a must-see in Cluny. You could either take one of the different tours or go to a higher level in the city and enjoy the view on the abbey.

  • Going there was not super planned for us on our holidays. But it absolutely was worth it! The place is spectacular. Super big with nice explanations and visuals on how it looked once it was build. We were really in the atmosphere of medieval period !
  • Such a great museum for one of the most important and iconic places of the Middleages. Really kind lady at the ticket office/bookshop, sadly the ancient complex of Cluny doesn't almost exist anymore but the remains are nicely hosted here. A visit to remember!
