Montargis : Michelin's recommendations
An area for hunting and fishing, known as the “Venice of Gâtinais”. The comparison may be somewhat optimistic, although there are several canals running through the town and the peaceful banks of the Briare Canal are a pleasant place for a stroll. With the ruins of its old castle, a museum dedicated to local painter Anne-Louis Girodet, its wash houses and renovated Tanners’ quarter, the town (famous for its pralines) has much to offer visitors.

It is bordered to the north by a narrow canal, with footbridges giving access to the houses that are built on the razed towers of the town's old rampart.
From two successive bridges, a view of two canals, with old houses and wash houses standing at the water's edge, while small boats planted with flowers move gently to and fro: the serenity of Montargis.
At the end is an elegant metal footbridge offering a pleasant view of the two locks.
