Recommended
There are two sides to Limoges, the French capital of porcelain: that of the episcopal city, clustered around the cathedral, and that of the castle, bustling and commercial, built on the neighbouring slopes around the Abbey of St Martial. The strong student presence makes it a lively city, dotted with attractive boutiques, which you can explore as you stroll through the streets and along the developed banks of the Vienne.
