Orleans Travel guide
Orleans : Michelin's recommendations
Wheat from Beauce, honey, chickens and potatoes from the Gâtinais, game from Sologne and wines from the Loire Valley. At the centre of a particularly rich natural environment, Orleans was a much treasured commercial centre. Treasured by the legions of Caesar, then the English... But Joan of Arc was watching! The capital of the Centre region is also called «Cité des roses» or «Jardin de France», as seen in the gardeners' plots, nurseries and marshlands around the town.
