Many buildings devoted to business and trade were also decorated in the art nouveau style in the early 20th century. They are still visible today and a special audioguide tour ‘Art Nouveau at the Heart of the Business District’, will guide you to them. As these buildings are located in Nancy’s shopping district, you can also take the opportunity for a spot of shopping in the many stores nearby.
The central market is an inviting place for lunch and has several eateries offering freshly prepared cuisine.
In the afternoon, make the most of the cycle routes around Nancy with a bike ride along the canal (bike rental available at the Maison du Vélo). You can ride as far as Jarville and stop at the History of Iron Museum or to Montaigu château in summer. From April to November, it is also possible to visit Fléville château, a little further on. The château has an impressive Renaissance façade and feudal dungeon.
In the evening, take advantage of Nancy’s rich cultural agenda to go and see a show. Opera, ballet, theatre, contemporary music, festivals… there is something for every taste.
