Meurthe-et-Moselle has a great attraction, a jewel that should not be bypassed under any circumstances: Nancy. This magnificent city was built with a spirit of anticipation, innovation, flight, creativity and love of beautiful forms. The entire city, such as Stanislaus Square and its famous Gate, is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for the medieval beauty of the old city and its priceless Art Nouveau residences, such as those on rue de la Commanderie. Many festivals and cultural activities take place within Nancy's walls: every year, Nancy Jazz Pulsation brings together thousands of lovers of music and an exceptionally relaxing and festive atmosphere. The Salle Poirel, as well as the Opéra national de Nancy, are exceptional stages, several hundred years old, where the best artists from France and Europe perform. This destination has many specialities such as mirabelle plum, which can be enjoyed in all its forms: in brandy, pie, jams... but also Bergamot candies, not to mention Lorraine pâté, a cute treat that you must hurry to discover! Stop in Toul to see the cathedral and the cloister of Saint-Étienne, and in Luneville to visit the superb castle. Stop off in the pretty medieval village of Vaudémont, where three wells almost perfectly aligned will impress you, and visit its old castle
