It was the Tricasses, a Celtic community from the region of Lyon, who settled on the banks of the Seine in Aube and gave Troyes its name in the 3rd century. It was later the setting of many significant historical events such as the defeat of Attila The Hun, the birthplace of Earldom and Champagne Fairs and the signing of the Treaty of Troyes during the Hundred Years’ War. From the 16th century to the mid 20th century, Troyes became famous for its illustrious bonnet-making industry.
The Forêt d’Orient Regional Natural Park is just minutes away from Troyes. At its heart is a beautiful lake where you can enjoy various water sports or simply take a relaxing summer swim. Just 60km from Troyes is the commune of Essoyes, which was Auguste Renoir’s holiday destination for more than 30 years and offers many beautiful walks. One trail will allow you to follow in the footsteps of this leading artist of the Impressionist movement.
The historic heart of Troyes, that forms a champagne cork when seen from above, hosts many architectural treasures. Half-timber houses, some of which were built in the 16th century, stand proud in their numbers. The city’s religious heritage is also worth the detour. From the Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul Cathedral and the Basilica Saint-Urbain to the Sainte-Madeleine Church with its rood screen and gardens. The buildings from the Renaissance are also not to be missed. Among them is the half-timbered Hotel de Mauroy, which houses the Maison de l’Outil tool museum, and the stone built Hotel de Vauluisant, where you’ll find the La Bonneterie bonnet-making museum.
The Nuits de Champagne Music Festival, held in October, is the biggest cultural event in Troyes and should not be missed. In the same month, another important event also takes place. The Children and Young Person’s Book Fair is held at the Espace Argence. In summer, the Ville en Lumières festival combines street theatre and projections on the city’s facades to celebrate its history. Younger visitors might also prefer the Foire de Mars funfair, with its many rides and attractions.
