Poitiers : Michelin's recommendations
‘‘Return to the Future’’ could be the challenge facing the capital of Poitou, after its well-earned place in the history books. After the Futuroscope seemed to have nearly upstaged it, the city decided to acquire a wide range of facilities and to renovate its old – often pedestrian – areas and steep little streets dotted with Romanesque churches. These days Poitiers is looking to the future, stimulated by its large population of students, drawn to its creativity and the exceptional historical setting.
