Orleans, learn Joan of Arc history along the Loire river

When in central France, it is hard not to be stunned by the beauty and class of Orléans across the river Loire.This city is deeply linked to the river. Indeed, Orléans used to be very rich during the Middle Ages, thanks to its bridges.

About France

No wonder that when defending Paris against the English troops, during the Hundred Years’ War, the famous Joan of Arc had to fight in Orléans.

Some other historical celebrities like John Calvin and later Molière also used to learn at the university of Orléans. Do not miss the visit of the Sainte-Croix cathedral, as well as the nice amount of museums. Among them, you will find the Joan of Arc museum of course. But Orléans is also pleasant for its many parks as well as its fine gastronomy.

Please yourself with fine wine, mustard and cotignac ( a subtle quinces jelly known since the Middle Ages).

    Paris to Orleans via train |
    "This was our first trip on the French Intercites train. Everything was announced only in French and since we do not speak French, was a little disconcerting. However, trains were clearly marked and we navigated the trip without incident. The first class seats were comfortable. "

    "We recently booked a trip from Orleans to Paris Austerlitz online and were immediately impressed when our tickets arrived at our house in Kuala Lumpur with no problems, 3 months ahead of our journey!. We booked first class seats to end our European travels and were pleased that we did. The journey itself was really easy from start to finish - everything was well signposted at Orleans and also at Gare d'Austerlitz. The train was really comfortable and clean but our kids complained that the wifi was a bit slow! - we will definitely use RailEurope again. "
