In order to fully enjoy the city, we suggest you to amble down the quartier du Chapitre gazing at the houses of canonesses. Then, how about walking through the basilica and contemplate the Place des Vosges, its arcades and the Maison du Bailli. Next, you could go over the Moselle using the footbridge and take a look at the Place Pinau and its statue, then walk the streets to treat yourself for a shopping break.
