Nancy : Michelin's recommendations
It is difficult to summarize the capital of Lorraine, but in an effort to do so the following are key: first, the wonderful Place Stanislas, a harmonious masterpiece by the town’s Polish duke; Jacques Callot’s engravings, now on display (with many other masterpieces) in a Fine Arts Museum that literally sets the scene for European art from the 14C to the present day; and finally the artists of the Nancy School, who made their town an Art Nouveau jewel. Three excellent reasons to visit the city!
