Vitry-le-François
The Essential
Rebuilt after its destruction in 1940 and located at the foot of chalky Champagne, the capital of Perthois owes its name and its checkerboard layout to François I. Although the town is centred around the Place d'Armes, water remains an important feature of the landscape here, with canals surrounding the town and various landmarks reminding visitors that this flower-decked town once had an important boating tradition. As an added bonus, the Champagne vineyards and forests, as well as the Lac du Der, are not far away.
