Charleville-Mézières : Michelin's recommendations
Brought together for administrative purposes in 1966, Charleville and Mézières have experienced quite different histories on either side of the River Meuse. Arthur Rimbaud was born, spent his childhood and part of his adolescence here. In the second half of the 20C the city acquired a reputation for the puppeteer's art, so much so that this is the venue for an international puppet festival that takes place every three years.
