A bit of everything and scenery is beautiful - worth a stop to make pictures. The golden gates and the fountain are a mixture of Italian an Versaille style. Take a break at one of the restaurants or bars and see the tourist pass by.

We had our five small children at this warm summer evening, watching the unexplainable master Lightshow at the surrounding building at Place Stanislas. That was stunning and beyond all our expectations!!

Nice place to end the day to soak up THE main attraction in Nancy. Drinks are expensive and food mediocre so recommend heading into the back streets to eat

This is a perfect baroque square that becomes totally magical during the nightime light and sound show. Its really well presented and the cafe's and resturants are first class. The art gallery is really worth a visit.

Pretty square with some vivid Bars and Restos to visit. Close by park is beautiful too and surrounding streets have a lot to discover as well.
