There are wonderful churches, museums, shops, restaurants, bars - and just about the most perfectly restored and preserved mediaeval town centre imaginable.

I didn't think much of Trois until I learned that it is both medieval and renaissance. You can easily miss this as they are on two different sides of town. The cathedral is gorgeous and not to be missed. The half timbered homes are interesting,...More

Troyes (I now know it's pronounced "twah" in that particular French way) is a delight - the knobbly streets, the wedding cake cathedral and churches, the half-timbered houses with their overhanging jetties, the oversize street topiary, the slate and shingle roofs, the river, the fountains,...More

... it is nice during the day but the illumination gives the wow-effect after sunset. See the pictures ... or go there and judge yourself.
