COME FOR A WALK WITH A LOCAL

     

Discover Poitiers with one of its residents

     

Romanesque capital, university city, Poitiers can claim 2000 years of history inscribed and woven in its current landscape. Bathed by the Clain and Boivre rivers, the promontory of Poitiers welcomes its visitors in a historic centre of character. The greenery of its valleys, parks and gardens, its markets and its lively life are revealed to visitors along its streets, along its paths.
The city, its districts and surroundings are revealed to anyone who wants to take the time to discover them… with a Greeter of course!

Unusual Walk

   

The unusual walk

   
Your greeter invites you to build with you an unusual stroll in the footsteps of photo details: “félicité”, sacrée mule, les trois clous, Trois Bourdons… and that we discover what many tourists visit and appreciate: the places favoured by travellers… or heritage buildings transformed into social housing and other details off the beaten track.
   

The lovers’ walk

   

The lovers’ walk

   
It is at the end of this road that the district is nestled. Rich in recent and often surprising history, it has seen populations settle in transit, leaving from afar or relocating here. The architecture reflects a layered development. It is the district of diversity, of solidarity where life is good, where, with the greeter, you will enjoy history (s).

The Walls have the floor

   

The Walls have the floor

   
Art often ephemeral, the painted walls of Poitiers are made and dismantled, discovered at random from a bridge, a staircase, a wall. Expression of today or much older, sometimes wild and sometimes wanted, this pictorial art always challenges us.

Bonjour Merci à Françoise pour cette agréable ballade découvert de Poitiers que nous avons beaucoup appréciée. Pouvoir échanger avec une habitante de la ville, était ce que nous recherchions et nous avons pu lui poser toutes nos questions. Le lendemain nous avons visité quelques unes des boutiques et lieux recommandés. Poitiers est une très belle ville, nous reviendrons. Merci Françoise et au plaisir de vous faire visiter quelques une de mes adresses lyonnaises à l’occasion. Emmanuelle et Philippe

Belle découverte de la ville de Poitiers en compagnie de Patrick, très sympathique, qui s’est rendu disponible plus tôt que prévu compte-tenu de notre heure d’arrivée avancée. Nous avons déambulé et flâné au gré des édifices repérés des hauteurs de la ville et terminé la balade par le Jardin des Plantes et en longeant le Clain. C’était très agréable.
