What people are saying:

The ancient French town of Besançon, in Hugo’s hometown, returns to the history of the 19th century. As the birthplace of French writers, Besançon is proud of Victor Hugo And in the center of the town, this exhibition hall of Hugo’s house is hidden, and it is also one of the most popular tourist attractions in Besançon. [Attraction guide] Detailed address: 140 Grande Rue, 25000 Besançon, French transportation guide: You can take the bus L3, L4 to Victor Hugo station, the bus ticket is 1.4 euros within 1 hour, the town is small, you can walk through the opening hours: 10:30-18:00 Ticket price: 2.5 euros for adults, 8 euros for clock museum tickets, free to visit Hugo’s former residence. Highlights: In this humble old building in the streets of the old city, the French writer Hugo was born in 1820. Born here on the 26th, although Hugo has only lived here for 6 months, in his collection of poems, novels, and scripts, Besançon, his beloved hometown, is mentioned many times. The building was designated as a historical building in 1942 and became a museum in 2013. There are a large number of image materials introducing Hugo's life, as well as the furniture used by Hugo and his autographs. Strolling in the exhibition hall and passing through the promenade, you can see many Hugo portraits from different periods. On the steps from the 0th floor to the 1st floor, each year when Hugo published a book is marked: such as "Ou "Nani" in 1830, "Notre Dame de Paris" in 1831... Step by step up the steps, looking at the portraits, it seems that Hugo's life has also gone through. Tips: It is recommended to visit the Clock Museum first. It is only a few steps away from the former residence of Hugo. The museum is located in the famous Palais Granvelle in the old city. You can see all kinds of weird clocks from ancient times to the present. Historically, Besançon was the birthplace of the French watch manufacturing industry, and there are still many valuable watch brands in the streets of the town.
