The best things to do in Valence

Are you planning to visit Valence? Great! There are many things to see in Valence. This French municipality is located in the Rhone-Alpes, and there are tons of things to do in Valence. The historic center is, among the many places to visit in Valence, one of the most interesting. On Rue Championnet, for example, you'll find the House of Heads, which dates from the 16th century, as well as a former inn where it is said that Napoleon once slept. You can continue your visit past one of the oldest buildings in the city, the House of Couriol, at
3 Rue Vernoux. In this place, the pastry chef Couriol started a business where the young Napoleon Bonaparte, then a student
without any money
at military school, came to eat
small buns with meat
every day. It's part of the route of the Napoleon Bonaparte, which has been organized by the tourist office of Valence.

Another of the many attractions in Valence within the old town is the statue of Championnet, a general in the French army who lived between 1762 and 1800. Art lovers shouldn't miss the Museum of Valence, home to the most artistic Valence attractions. There's a large collection of archaeological objects that were found in the region. The collection includes tools, art, ceramics, bones, and remains of prehistoric people. And to unwind a bit, there's nothing better than a walk in
Jouvet Park, one of the most pleasant Valence activities. The park is actually the largest in the city.
