Day 1 :
Arrival in Troyes in the morning.
In the afternoon, go off to discover the historical capital of the Champagne region, this authentic medieval city. Start your discovery with a short film presenting the history of the town, its transformation from Augustobona Tricassium to Troyes with the time traveler Isidore. Then, continue your exploration with a guided tour. Depending on your interests, opt for a special visit to discover the secrets of an unexpected heritage, or choose to visit the historical district of Saint-Jean-au-Marche with its timber frame houses dating from the 16th century, the typical “Ruelle des Chats”, the Mortier d’Or courtyard, and the St Madeleine church. You have a romantic soul? In this case, go for the guided tour “Troyes, 10 centuries of love and romanticism” and dive into the heart of the city where knights proclaim their passion to their ladies. Otherwise, choose to discover Troyes through the art of the Belle Epoque, or through its industrial and hosiery heritage from the 19th century. For the sporty ones, you also have the option of a guided tour on bicycle or Segway. Then, enjoy a visit of the museum of the hosiery-making industry, where you will have the opportunity to see well-preserved knitting machines, hosiery items dating from the 19th century, and testimonies of the daily life of hosiery workers. Savor a diner at a local restaurant in the city center of Troyes. Overnight stay.
