Cultural Heart of Lorraine

Crossed by the Canal de la Marne au Rhin, Nancy has many small boats and péniches (barges) that navigate the canal waterways, giving you a fantastic vantage point of the city's historical architecture from the water. Nancy was burned in 1218 at the end of the War of Succession of Champagne. It was then rebuilt in stone over the next centuries and became the capital of the Duchy of Lorraine. The modern city boasts a diverse art and architectural heritage as capital of the Meurthe-et-Moselle department and the economic capital of the Lorraine region. Many streets are pedestrians-only making walking one of the easiest and most pleasant ways to tour the compact city center. Getting around by car is difficult due to the narrow, winding streets, and local authorities actively discourage driving in the historical district. Alternate transportation options range from the Gare de Nancy Ville historical railway station, the modern tramway that becomes very crowded during rush hour, and VélOstan bicycle rentals at kiosks scattered throughout the city. When using our France trip itinerary planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
