We were here in Nancy during August to visit some friends of my wife. We discovered that a light show that takes place every night until the end of August. So on a Monday evening we took a seat in one of the squares cafe's ordered some drinks and waited ... and waited. The light show does not commence until 22.45 Hrs so bot great if you have young children. But I can recommend the wait it was an amazing light show projected onto the squares building (mainly the town hall). Great visual effects and really breath taking graphics plus the best bit is its free!

This is one of the great squares in France. All built over a short period, the architecture has a unity that is often lacking in other squares. Once you have walked round and admired the views there is a wide range of cafes and restaurants to choose from.

This is the main tourist attraction when you come to Nancy. The place is a large square wich contains the town hall, two very nice fountains and of course the statue of Stanislas.

This is a beautifully designed public space. Beautiful to just walk around and admire or sit at a cafe and watch the people walking through. It also has a good number of decent restaurants and cafes along it.

If you are in Nancy for a short time, do not miss this square. It is absolutely great during the day, but at night it turns into a spectacular night show! I have never seen anything like it! It usually starts past 10pm and goes on for good 20 at least. There are also a lot of bars and restaurants in the square that are really busy during the night. There is a huge University in the city so a lot of college students hang out there at night. There is also a cool ice-cream place on the square that sells gelato and makes it into a rose in your cone. It's a bit pricey but totally worth it! Sooo good!
