A city that can trace its history back thousands of years, Poitiers boasts of a fascinating heritage with its pleasurable labyrinth of beautiful boulevards and cobbled streets, that can be enjoyed at leisure during a weekend break. Poitiers is a treasure trove of historical sites, such as the Romanesque churches of Notre-dame-la-Grande, Eglise Sainte-Radegonde and Cathédrale Saint-Pierre, which have been iconic fixtures of Poitiers’ skyline throughout history. Le Musée Sainte-Croix, which showcases a comprehensive collection of paintings, sculptures and artworks by well-known French artists, is the perfect way to while away an afternoon. The small square of La Place d'Armes is the place to enjoy a cup of hot coffee or a glass of French wine over wonderful conversation — with friends you brought or the friends you just made. As the sun begins to set, the ambience of Parc De Blossac and Le Jardin Des Plantes takes on an enchanted atmosphere. With its repertoire of exquisite statues, fountains and grottoes, these parks become a haven at dusk.
