Troyes is a gem! The entire city center dates from 1524 – 1544. A major fire destroyed the former city center completely. The rapid reconstruction of this very prosperous city brought about a beautiful architectural style, from that time, that is present everywhere and intact. The entire city center consists of authentic mansions that were owned by merchants and owners of the clothing industry.
Troyes is also a very pleasant and bustling shopping and walking city. Everywhere you will find terraces, restaurants, small shops, and beautiful buildings. Master Caffet, world champion chocolate works, has his workshop and shop there, a MUST DO. Troyes, however, is best known for his creativity in women’s clothing. The fashion that was shown and sold in Paris was – and still is – created and made in Troyes. So there are very many outlet stores in and around the city center. Gentlemen, be warned …
On our organized routes we also make an extensive visit to Troyes. If you prefer to visit Troyes at your own pace, feel free to ask for some extra information via the contact page or on site at the castle.
