well, it is nice, but indeed very small. not some extra beauty though, there are prettier parts of Strasbourg. despite its name, buildings in the area look more German than French...

One of my favorite parts of Strasbourg. So many ½ timbered houses, the canal, and the former Pont Couvert just outside Petite France. This is a wonderful place to stroll for an hour or so. Then go back at night for some beautiful pictures of the houses along the canal.

Easily walkable and history at every turn. Aside from the main shopping street, it was easy to imagine what it all looked like back in time. Worth a visit.

I've spent 3 days in Strasbourg and I was really impressed. The old city called La Petite France is a very unique, medieval place with a wonderful cathedral. Safe streets, excellent restaurants, friendly people. I"ll be back.

Strasbourg, France is full of charm, history, architecture and romance. Simply stated, something for everyone. You can even tour the city by boat. Bring your camera, there's lots of great photo shots here. Don't be afraid to try Escargot, it's really good here. I've been several times, and found something new to see each time.

"Petit France" oozes olde worlde and charm while being a backdrop to today's world with numerous outdoor cafes and lovely narrow streets filled with chic people in relaxed mood. We plan to return for a day of cafe lounging and people watching. The buildings are medieval and fabulous and you feel like you are back in the 14th century.. Love... More

This is place you must see/walk around. The buildings are fantastic and quaint but it's almost over before you know it. I ate supper there and it is certainly perfect for that. It's also a great place to sit outside and just have a drink as there is plenty of people watching opportunities. Last but not least you could take... More
