A steep site whose ramparts hang over the Charente River and the surrounding countryside, lofty bell towers dotted among pink tiled rooftops and a colourful town with a pleasant disposition. Steeped in southern charm, the city of Angoulême is nonetheless the undisputed capital of comic strips and cartoons, as you will soon discover when you look at the street signs and painted walls. Don't miss the city's museums, which are best discovered on a walking tour of the town.
