Famed as one of the world's leading manufacturers of porcelain, Limoges is something of a household name without many of us even knowing it. However, in the modern day, it's the ideal destination for fans of modest city life, a small but perfectly formed cousin to Paris.
As to be expected, Limoges makes much of its history with craftsmanship. Museums and exhibitions here are plentiful, with Galerie du Canal among the best for its blend of old and contemporary works. Quartier de la Boucherie is a similarly scenic spot, the perfect backdrop for a day of shopping. Full of character, its winding streets have drawn comparison to the city of York, with many medieval features still present.
In the modern day, Limoges is home to former European basketball champions, CSP Limoges. Catch a game from as little as €7, or opt instead for a visit to Velorail, where you can hire bikes and tour the French countryside. For a stress-free summer holiday, Limoges is a great getaway, and just a couple of hours away.
