“A wonderful old town center”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Just by chance we spent half a day in Troyes, a city in the Champagne,France on our way back home. And we didn't regret it.We had found one of these B&B chain motels 3 km outside(a good way to stay for a night) and then,on a sunny August afternoon we went 'downtown'.To see all these very old buildings, the small passways, the little shops and the restaurants where you can sit outside and watch the life going by is really amazing.All the old houses look different in some way.None is looking like the others.They nearly touch each other with their roof.Some were constructed around the 16 century(15...),as the letters carved into the wood tell you.Back in those days Columbus had just discovered the new continent, people in Europe struggled for more freedom in religion and their personal life.Just imagine these times passing by when you sit in one of the cafés..and enjoy!
So, in case you are on your way near this town--stop and visit!!
