David Sheffield - France/Troyes

David Sheffield's Story : Troyes, France

Troyes
I lived in this small French city for most of my stay in Europe. Our group stayed in Dorms on the Campus of the University and it was a 30 minute walk to the old city center which has some of the most beautiful architecture I've seen. The timber framed housing dates back to the 15th century hasn't changed since. The people are very nice and I'm sure they had their laughs when I tried to speak French and when I bought a kilo (2-1/2 pounds, a little bit more than I intended to get) of tomatoes the first day I arrived. The transportation system is very good with bus routes all through the town. The stops even have displays showing how long the next bus will be. They do stop running around 6:30pm so If your going downtown at night plan on walking home.
