Troyes, city of a thousand colours
Discover the colourful and unique city of Troyes: take a trip there with OUIBUS! Begin your visit by exploring the medieval town centre of Troyes, which is aptly shaped like a champagne cork, symbolic of the region’s many champagne vineyards. As you wander among the colourful, half-timbered houses, listen out for the sound of the bells of the town’s 11 Catholic churches ringing out. A rare stone building in the town centre, the Hotel de Vaulaisant houses the Museum of Art Champenois and the Museum of Hosiery. Next take a leap forward in time with a visit to the Museum of Modern Art, in the former Episcopal Palace.
If the weather’s good, you’ll want to sit outside at one of the restaurants beside the Seine where you can try some of the culinary specialities of Troyes such as andouillette sausage, and potée champenoise (the local hotpot). On the drinks side, indulge in a glass of champagne as an apéritif and try some prunelle brandy after dinner. Troyes is also famous for its chocolate: why not take some home to your friends?
Ready to do some shopping? You’ll find several outlet stores on the edge of town, while the centre is full of quirky and original shops.
In the evening, go for a stroll through the Swiss Valley to reach the theatre district, where you will have a wide range of shows to choose from. After you’ve been won over by the charms of Troyes its time to leave by OUIBUS once again!
