My dearest city ever! Safe, polite, tolerant, interesting, informative, relaxing and tasty. always want to be back. wines, book and music stores the best! restaurants wit a lots of wine an huitres and confit de canard - they are perfect. just do not be afraid to visit any near St Catherine street.
It's a nice place for vacations in the southwest of France, even for visiting North Spain, on the way to Santiago de Compostela.
