Of course, you will love to go back in time to the splendid days of the Renaissance, and even to those, glorious as well, of the Middle Ages, while getting lost throughout the maze of alleys that have shaped the historical heart of Troyes.
Of course, you will have a taste of the indescribable charm of these « old » streets, now reserved for pedestrians, that look full of joy thanks to a bunch of multicoloured half-timbered houses.
But Troyes and its surroundings also benefits from multiple little greenery spots that are like many places where you can take a breath besides the frantic race of everyday life.
