Capital of the Artois region, Arras is reminiscent of a theatre set: the Grand'Place and Place des Héros, precious heritage from the Flemish Baroque. Every evening, the city lights up, making for a shimmering spectacle. Here, a taste for partying goes hand in hand with gastronomy: andouillette, beer, and even heart-shaped pains d'épice. In July, the citadel comes to life with the rock concerts of the Main Square Festival. This city is a must-see.
