    Vanishing toilets

    Where do you flush it?

    Favorite thing: I know toilets are everywhere but wanted to put this photo up as this style is dying out. I call them "squatty potties" as there is no seat. Fifteen years ago we encountered this kind very frequently but they seem to be dying out in most of Western Europe. This one was in a cafe where we stopped for coffee just after we arrived in Provins. You can figure out for yourself how to use it.

    Some steep hills

    Coming up to the highest part of town

    Favorite thing: Walking the whole city of Provins is fairly easy. However, you should be aware that, as there are the Ville Basse and the Ville Haute, there are some hills to climb. If you have problems walking up inclines, take it slow and easy. They are not very high but can be steep in places.

    Provins pass

    Provins Pass

    Favorite thing: This pass includes the entrance to Caesar's Tower, the Tithe Barn, the Underground Galleries and the Museum.
    It is valid during one year. Strange, while one day is ample to discover the whole Medieval town.

    Discounts and special offers are available in shops and restaurants when showing this pass.

    Be prepared

    Favorite thing: It would probably be better to arm yourself with a map before arriving in Provins as the train station at one end of the town and the tourist office - right at the other end!! Otherwise, pop into any of the monuments or museums and ask politely for a map.

    Unless you're driving to Provins, you don't really have to go to the tourist office. By the time you walk from the train station, you would have seen most of the attractions anyway :)
