We asked The Good life France editor Janine Marsh to give us her three top tips to Saint-Étienne – one of Euro 2016’s host cities.
- Head for the pedestrianised rue des Martyrs de Vingré and Place Jean Jaurés in the centre ville for the best bars and restaurants.
- Try the local speciality: Rapée (pronounced rapay) a grated fried potato fritter that goes with everything here!
- Escape the crowds in the city and hop on a bus to the town of Saint-Victor-sur-Loire, a district of Saint-Étienne. Great for boat rides, swimming and relaxing by the river.
Janine has recently written a guide to all of the UEFA 2016 host cities for Voyages-sncf.com, with everything you need to know if you are heading to France for the football (or not) this Summer.
