New City, Old City, 18th century heritage or Art Nouveau, in Nancy you move easily from one century to another and one atmosphere to another in just a few steps.
Pose for a photo in Place Stanislas, take some time to breath in the Botanical Gardens of Montet, hop over to the l’Ecole de Nancy (School of Nancy), Nancy Thermal or Saurupt the hub of Art Nouveau architecture, take some strides through the Park Pepinere and take the time to wander, explore and digest the Old City.
The change in personality between the different quartiers of Nancy will surprise you. The historic heart of the city of course, but try visiting the suburb of Three Houses (Le faubourg des Trois Maisons), St Leo or Médreville which are small pockets within the city each with their own style of shops and specialties.
In the same fashion, the villages and towns surrounding Nancy (which make up Grand Nancy) will entice you to stay longer. You will find paved streets, beautiful houses, panoramas of green space, as well as lively markets with the smell of spices in the air.
Visitors pass from ponds to forests, from bridges across the River Meurthe to ancient hillside vineyards and from golf courses to sweeping meadows – almost without realising.
These places have a real depth of character, and certain times of the year exude a particular charm thanks to an intense and eclectic sports program (football, basketball and athletics at the top) and cultural program (6 museums, a national opera, a symphony orchestra, a national ballet, two national stages -The Manu in Nancy and the André Malraux in Vandoeuvre- a Zenith and other venues).
