A two-day stay in Nancy is great for a quick glimpse into the city. Discover its rich heritage, dating all the way back to the Age of Enlightenment, starting with the Place Stanislas, which is considered one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. Explore the winding streets and medieval architecture of the old town, where you’ll also get to admire the homes of the great, age-old families of Lorraine. After recharging your batteries in a Première Classe hotel, set off to explore the Art Nouveau that has decorated the city since 1900 and can be found both in the Saurupt neighborhood and the Musée de l'École de Nancy.
If you’ve got 7 or 8 days in Nancy to enjoy, you’ll have time to unearth more of its hidden gems. The Ducal Palace of Nancy, once home to the Dukes of Lorraine, the medieval Porte de la Craffe gateway, the Basilica Saint-Epvre, the Church of Saint-François-des-Cordeliers, the Place de la Carrière and the Place d’Alliance are just some of the city’s must-see locations. When you feel like taking a break from all the sightseeing, a stroll in the Jardin Dominique Alexandre Godron, a stone’s throw from Place Stanislas, is just the thing. A trip to Metz is also worth arranging if you can — it’s only about 40 miles from your Première Classe hotel.
A vibrant city, Nancy has plenty to offer when it comes to family vacations. For a fun yet educational day out, take the kids to the Nancy Museum Aquarium, where you’ll find an extensive collection of stuffed marine creatures and a zoological gallery. The Forêt de Goupil children’s amusement park is also a great day out, located right in the heart of Haye Forest. With a games room, mini-golf course, trampoline area and laser game, there’s plenty to keep the kids going all day long. Every night, a good night’s sleep awaits you back in your rooms at the Nancy Première Classe hotels.
