You can discover the city centre in the shape of a "champagne cork" (seen from above), which is considered the most beautiful medieval urban complex in the country, its pedestrian zone with its magnificently restored 16th century half-timbered houses, the beautiful churches and their superb stained glass windows such as the Sainte-Madeleine church or the Saint-Urbain basilica, but also the 13th century Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul cathedral with its unique tower; the Ruelle des Chats, the narrowest alleyway in the city, whose houses almost touch each other at roof level; the Centre d'Art Contemporain Passages, housed in an old hosiery; the Cité du Vitrail and its various activities for visitors and its very beautiful exhibitions; the town hall and the Hôtel du Lion Noir in Renaissance style; the Musée de l'outil et de la pensée ouvrière; several gardens, some of which are private but open to the public, such as the Jardin des Innocents or the jardin des plantes médicinales.
Festivities are also held throughout the year, such as the Salon des artisans d'art in February, the Foires de Champagne in May and the Nuits de Champagne in October. Gastronomy also occupies an important place in the city with the champagne vineyard, but also the andouillette of Troyes, the chaource (cow's milk cheese) and the sauerkraut of Briennois!
The geographical location of the city of Troyes in the Aube, in Champagne-Ardenne, influences its climate, which is of a warm oceanic type. Rain is often present, over the seasons that follow one another. Rainy days accompany cold weather in winter. The rather late and short spring is a pleasant time to recharge your batteries. However, you can count on many bright summer days to enjoy your holidays and discover the tourist attractions of the surroundings of Troyes!
Whether you own a caravan, a motorhome, or a van, get ready for a roadtrip filled with unique camping and sightseeing experiences!
