Although packed with art and heritage, Nevers is a small city that you can easily visit over the course of a short stay. Don’t miss the Ducal Palace right up on top of the hill, which is thought to be the first castle built in the Loire. Another must-see monument is
Nevers Cathedral, a Gothic masterpiece with some incredible stained-glass windows. After a day of history and a night in your Première Classe hotel, a walk along the Ver-Vert path will take you along the Loire, with information about the wildlife and nature surrounding Nevers provided along the way.
A week in Nevers is the perfect opportunity to dive deeper into the city’s heritage. In addition to the must-see few, plenty of other buildings have made their mark on the city’s heritage, like the Église Saint-Pierre with its fabulous Italian frescoes, the Chapelle Sainte-Marie and its original Baroque façade, and the Porte du Croux and Goguin Tower, some of the last remaining traces of the city walls. Head out of your Première Classe hotel for a stroll along the canal running to the side of the Loire, crossing the Nièvre and paving the way for you to explore unspoiled villages, Roman churches, and idyllic countryside.
Lush and peaceful, the tiny city of Nevers is the ideal destination for a family stay in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté. Head out of your Première Classe hotel and off for a fantastic day in the Val Maraîcher de la Baratte. This area has been farmland for centuries, and is overflowing with kitchen and flower gardens, fountains, bathing spots, and rustic farmhouses. If it’s culture you’re after, visit the Musée Nivernais de l'Education, home to a reconstructed early 20th-century classroom. Lastly, take a trip to Apremont-sur-Allier in Cher, which is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages in France, and explore the incredible floral park.
