Glad we stopped

Glad we walked through but I didn't feel this was a "must see". Cute shops, good eats but some are quite expensive. Go early or late to avoid the bus loads of tourists!

It doesn't cover a large area, but with the medieval and black and white buildings, numerous little bridges crossing the river and narrow cobbled streets it really is a charming place. Ideal for a stroll, lunch by the river, dinner on a terrace or people watching sipping a coffee, this place can't be missed when in Strasbourg.

Lovely area combining side streets, courtyard areas and canal side walks. Start at the bottom of Rue du Vieux Marche et Poissons and walk west.

The crowds weren't bad at all (in May), the weather was great and we were able to see just about all of Petite France on foot. It took a bit of wandering to find the cathedral which sounds weird considering how large it is, but when you're tucked away in a little alley way or on one of the shopping... More

Charming place to walk and eat! The pedestrian streets are filled with locals n tourist alike. Good people watching and history absorbing! Children playing in the streets and cafes everywhere. Much calmer neighborhood to eat in rather than the cathedral area.

It is a very nice part of Strasbourg which located on the Grande Île (Main Island), where the river Ill splits up into a number of canals and cascades through a small area of medieval half-timbered houses and baroque sandstone buildings,There are lots of nice shops and restaurants

I loved that little historical charm of La Petite France, but the restaurants are definitely over-priced.
