Vienne Travel guide
Vienne : Michelin's recommendations
Often neglected by motorists who fly by on the motorway in search of the sun, the old Gallo-Roman city is a true summary of history. Not very often do you find so many Romanesque temples and medieval churches per square meter! Built on the banks of the Rhone River and in the heart of an amphitheatre of hills facing the sun, one has to discover this city among its numerous pedestrian streets and sheltered passages, unless you prefer the bustle of the beautiful market on Saturdays.
