A visit to Troyes

Today, C. and I visited a quaint town in the Champagne region of France called Troyes (by me) and pronounced “Twa” (by the locals) with a few of our friends. The town is only about an hour from Fontainebleau so it was a great day trip, if only the day were a bit warmer 🙂

But, in spite of the cold weather, we had a great time walking around the town—stopping for an amazing cheese and mushroom fondue lunch at a local restaurant, visiting truly impressive churches with gorgeous stained glass windows, and marveling at the exposed-beam buildings (architects would know the precise name for them, I’m sure) that date back to the 1500s. You can see some of our photos from today below.

  1. what fun to join you on your day in Troys, if only through your pictures. I am going to recommend that you creat your own set of 50 day trips from 25 Rue de Napoleon Bonaparte, a take off on you know what.
    Troys looks like a facinating town, a combination of Strattford on Avon with the Tudor style loking shops, and the ornate churches with magnificent starined glass winows. Some of the windows reminded me of San CHappelle. Is that a ccorrect impression?
    So glad you had such a great day. keep it up.

  2. awesome pics!
