1st highlight: Strasbourg city tour
After breakfast, we set off for the capital and largest city of the Grand East region of France, bordering with Germany. It immersed in Franco-German culture and has been a cultural bridge between France and Germany for centuries. Its historic city center, the "Grande Île" (Grand Island), was classified a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Its rich architectural heritage embraces styles from the Medieval, Renaissance, Romantic and Art Nouveau eras. There is a maze of narrow streets that beckon you to wander and look up at the rooflines and steeples. The monument of the Alsace's heritage is located here- the cathedral of Notre-Dame. Hundreds of sculptures stand out from its wall accentuating the effects of shadow and light and its windows are adorned by the 12th - 14th century stained-glass. The colour of its walls, made from red sandstone, changes throughout the day depending on the weather and colour of the sky. From its tower we get a look across the entire city: the Kammerzell house from the 16th century, the Petite France quarter - the most picturesque district of the city, the Church of Saint-Thomas from the 12th century and many others.
