France: Strasbourg, popular tourist destination

Strasbourg is the capital of the Alsace region of France and is most widely known for hosting a number of important European institutions. It is also famous for its beautiful historical centre

This city is one of the nine largest cities in France with nearly half a million inhabitants in a metropolitan area spanning across the river into the German city of Kehl, on the eastern bank of the Rhine.

The city itself is the seat of the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights, the European Ombudsman, the Eurocorps, the European Audiovisual Observatory and, most famously, the European Parliament, which also holds sessions in Brussels.

Strasbourg is a popular tourist destination primarily thanks to the beautifully preserved and pedestrian friendly city centre, which can be explored on foot or bicycle in a few days. Don't forget that Strasbourg's appeal now brings tourists to the city throughout the year, with large tour groups especially frequent during the summer months and during the annual winter market. Staying for a few days will allow you to see the city when it's calmest, first thing in the morning and during the evening.

Oh, wow, I had to share this post with my husband, as it brought back many beautiful memories. (With a last name of "Fayard," I guess it shows he has strong ties to France!) I am glad to be a new follower.


P.S. I've left a response to your comment on Bird's-eye View, http://michellefayard.blogspot.com/2011/08/wonderfully-witty-its-romantic-fantasy.html.
