Presentation

If you want to know everything about Briançon, this tour is for you. As you wander through the picturesque narrow streets with your guide, you'll discover the town's rich past, its distinctive civil architecture and its Vauban fortifications. During the tour, you can comment on the bastioned walls, visit the Collegiate Church and the King's Auditorium, which houses a copy of the relief plan of Briançon.
There will be 3 events with soldiers from the Royal Scottish Regiment, giving you an insight into shooting manoeuvres and the life of a soldier in the time of King Louis XV: shooting demonstrations on the half-moon at the start of the tour of the rampart ditch; manoeuvres on the Place d'Armes in the middle of the tour and a presentation of the soldier's uniform at the end of the tour
