The ascent is easy, the path well marked and well marked opens up beautiful perspectives that reveal the landscape. Surprisingly in Burgundy, we hear cicadas, La Roche de Solutré has given birth to a Mediterranean botanical ensemble. To do absolutely, provide water if it is hot, but no special equipment necessary to climb. On the descent, take the time to visit the Museum of Prehistory, which traces the history of the discovery of the site and the excavations that were carried out there. the place gave its name to a Paleolithic period, the "Solutrean".
A little hike up the road, the view is worth. Complete the experience with a visit to the museum
