Lorraine is the perfect French holiday destination. Many of its towns have entries in the famous ‘Histoire de France’, including Bar le Duc, Epinal, Verdun and Sedan. Book a flight to Metz and tour Nancy’s famous Places Stanislas, Carrières and Alliance. Considered to be the most beautiful town squares in Europe and classified UNESCO World Heritage Sites, they hold pride of place amongst Nancy’s tourist attractions. Explore Nancy’s stunning streets, particularly the Saurupt and Nancy Thermal quarters, where you’ll see prime examples of the 1880’s Art Nouveau Movement alongside some superb early 20th Century Art Deco buildings. Metz is a 45 minute drive north of Nancy. It’s a charming town built with a golden-coloured stone from Jaumont that reflects light off the facades; sunsets in Metz are spectacular! Dating back to 1,000 years BC, Metz is culturally rich. Visit the Saint Etienne Cathedral with its staggering 6,500m2 of gothic stained glass and the contemporary Centre Pompidou, France’s most visited modern art museum outside of Paris. Reserve a hotel room in Metz or Nancy and be within easy reach of these iconic landmarks. Suffice to say that Lorraine is a stunning region – it’s time you checked it out for yourself!
