Gigantic square is the focal point of Nancy life and is filled with a museum, many cafes and restaurants. Lots of fun to people watch sitting in one of the cafes and watch the world of Nancy walk by. Architecture is dazzling .

Light show at 18:15 and 19:15. Lights turn on at 17:00. Beautiful tree is one piece. Light show is very creative and entertaining. Nancy does a wonderful job being festive at the darkest time of the year.

The beauty of this place is in its symmetry -- just perfect for an OCD person like me! it is very large but warm and inviting. I've seen many public squares in my travels, think cold vast Tianamen in Beijing or the charming, bustling Piazza...More
