Overview

Poitiers, when romanesque art goes with amusement park

In the heart of the Poitou-Charentes region in western France, the beautiful city of Poitiers is waiting for you. It is located 100 km south from Tours and the world-famous Loire Valley’s chateaux, and counts a little more than 80.000 inhabitants

About France

The whole region of Poitou-Charente is known for its multitude of religious romanesque style buildings. Poitiers presents many of remarkable examples of this beautiful architecture.

Among them, head the Notre-Dame-la-Grande’s church with its amazing sculpted facade, or visit the UNESCO listed Saint-Hilaire-le-Grand’s church, dating back from the 11th century. Several meters away from Notre-Dame-la-Grande’s church, you will discover another pearl of Poitiers’ cultural heritage : the "angevin gothic " style Saint Peter’s cathedral. If the cultural heritage of Poitiers is really rich, many other activities are available, such as the nearby Futurscope amusement park...

Whatever you do in Poitiers, you will enjoy this multifaceted and pleasant historic city.

    "I was very happy with the train journey. Unfortunately the timetable did not allow for us to travel directly to CDG and then to our plane and we had to go up the evening before our flight. Sunday timetable is limited as expected. "

    TGV train from CDG to Poitiers |
    "With no need to visit Paris every trip I love that this train leaves from CDG and I do not need to go into Paris before heading south. Same for my return trip as I can return directly to CDG for my international flight home. Dining car food is very expensive and not much choice - take something with you. "

    "Had a good experience on the TGV from Paris de Lion to Avignon, after great deal of confusion getting onboard as the carriages were numbered from 1-8 and then 8-1 again, our booking was for carriage 15 which turned out Thebes the second number 8, once we we resettled along with other passengers with the same issue the trip itself was good.
