Guide to Nancy
Nancy is found in the Meurthe-et-Moselle prefecture, perched on the left bank of the river Meurthe. The city is surrounded by lush hills.
Nancy experiences an oceanic climate, according to the Köppen classification, but by French standards, it has a "continental" climate influenced by maritime winds. Summers are mildly warm, while winters can get freezing cold.
The city of Nancy rose in prominence during the Age of Enlightenment, and its motto is “non inultus premor”, which is Latin for “I am not injured unavenged.”
Things to do in Nancy
Start the day at a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Start your exploration of Nancy at Place Stanislas, a large town square and UNESCO World Heritage Site. In fact, it was the first square in France to be given this distinction, in large part due to the fact that the town centre’s heritage starts in the Middle Ages.
Admire the city’s architecture
To explore fine 18th-century architecture, visit the cathedral of Nancy, Triumphal Arch, and the Palace of the Dukes of Lorraine, which also houses the Musée Lorrain. If religious architecture tickles your interest, you will certainly want to swing by the Church of Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours, the Church of Saint-François-des-Cordeliers, and the Basilica of Saint-Epvre.
Spend an afternoon at an art museum
Nancy is also a treasure trove of the fine arts. Many of the Art Nouveau buildings are banks or private homes, but the Musée des Beaux-Arts hosts a fantastic collection of pieces from the art nouveau movement, as well as permanent collections showcasing painters from the 15th to the 20th centuries. You might also want to check out the Musée de l'École de Nancy, which contains a remarkable collection of Art Nouveau works by maestros like Émile Gallé, Daum, and Caravaggio.
