Where smart people learn to love Alsace Capital of Alsace, home of the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, and less than 2.5 hours from Paris by TGV, Strasbourg beckons with a blend of history and modernity. The Grande Île, Strasbourg's historic city center, is a UNESCO world heritage site. This was the first time such an honor was placed on an entire city center. There are incredible sights to see in just this one area : The Palais Rohan, 500-hundred year old churches including the Cathédral de Nôtre Dame (the tallest medieval building in Europe) and its famous astronomical clock. If you're lucky to be here around the holidays, the Strasbourg Christmas market surrounding the church has been an annual event since 1570. The neighborhood known as Petit France sits along the banks of The Grand Île. Famous for its medieval, black and white timber-framed buildings, the renowned Maison Kammerzell is the city's best example on Place de la Cathédrale in an area formerly belonging to the Holy Roman Empire.

Capital of Bretagne and a culture all its own The capital of Bretagne (Brittany), Rennes is a bit over two hours from Paris on the TGV. The Rennes train station is a light, airy and modern terminal and a short 15-minute walk to the Republique Square and Parlement de Bretagne. This lively town is well known for its spectacle called "Les Tombées de la Nuit." Held every July, performers turn the town into their stage. Randomly hear poetry on a street corner or a song in a garden. And speaking of gardens, the city and its inhabitants are, one would say, obsessed with them. We're not talking about ordinary pruning. These are labor-intensive and labors of love. The city's best is the Parc du Thabor. While compact, the garden is significant. Free for all and open daily, the garden was established in 1868 and consists of circular walkways around 11 beds growing over 3,000 types of flora. It's a classic French formal garden, a style that places an emphasis on symmetry and order. Learn more about Rennes
