It has a beautiful old charm with narrow streets and many interesting 17th and 18th century buildings. During the summer there is street theatre which depicts the city’s history. Around Langres, several lakes, such as ‘Lac de la Liez’ or ‘Lac de Charmes,’ allow you to spend a pleasant moment; swimming, boating, fishing and walking.
Vesoul is a capital of the Haute Saone region. The charm of the old town lies in its Bourgeois houses, located in small streets dating from the Renaissance. You can visit the Georges-Garett Museum with arts and archaeology and have a nice dinner at a terrace. Families have the opportunity to spend time swimming at the Aquaparc or Ludolac lake just outside the city.
