What's Orleans Like?

Orleans has had a turbulent history and was nearly flattened in World War II. Further back in its past it saw attacks by the Romans, English, and Attila the Hun, but sailed through it all like a survivor. Among the remaining wonders are the imposing Gothic spires of the Cathédrale Ste-Croix. You can also see a reproduction of the home of legendary martyr Joan of Arc, who died for her country. This is found on Place General-de-Gaulle. The Groslot mansion is a fine old manor house which has seen visits from many of the kings of France. It has interesting displays and the peaceful garden is well worth a wander. The Musée des Beaux Arts is a large gallery with paintings from many famous masters. The kids will love Parc Floral de la Source, a green paradise over 80 acres, which has play areas, a butterfly kingdom, lush greenery, and puppet shows. It's accessible by day trip from most Orleans hotels.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Calais

The French tend to be conservative in their interactions, particularly with strangers. Shaking hands is the normal mode of greeting until familiarity is established, when kissing on the cheek is acceptable. They set high store by appropriate standards of dress, so don't wear swimwear away from the beach and if you dine at someone's home, always dress appropriately. You should always be punctual as being late for appointments without explanation is considered an insult. In terms of what to eat, Orleans is all about fresh local produce harvested from the lush environs of the Loire countryside. This includes cheese, fish, vegetables and fruit.
