The venerable town of Troyes dates back to antiquity. Today, the town is undergoing a significant transformation which began in 1970. This slow and patient restoration programme of the town’s heritage sites is coupled with the evolution of its economy.
First on the list of things to see is the fabulous collection of half-timbered houses which makes the town proud. They have received a glorious facelift, adorning them in a multitude of colours. Water, on which the town was established, has also taken centre stage again.
The quays of the Seine are an eloquent testimony to this. Before winding through Paris, the river passes through the former capital of the Champagne counts, where it is infused with the spirit of moderation.
The town is on a human scale, and the countryside is never far !
Troyes Champagne Métropole now welcomes visitors passing through with pleasure. Let yourself be conquered!
