I loved the telepherique cause it was so modern, so technologically advanced and the view is really great!! And the best thing is that you can use it instead of the bus! So you will buy time if you’re on tight schedule

An excellent shortcut to the newly opened Capucins site. The view is really beautiful. You can have unusual views on the Recouvrant bridge, the Penerf river and the naval facilities around. Beautiful.

A nice idea to get a good view of the Penfeld and military base particularly on a sunny day, but the ride is very short. We took some good photos from the cabin and the window in the floor. The Cappucines workshop on the other...More
