Visit a picturesque French regional town with a rich heritage when you choose one of our holidays to Limoges. Whether or not you’re interested in the enamels that form such an important part of the town’s history, you’re sure to have a lovely time with our holidays to Limoges from Stansted. Limoges was established as a city by the Romans thanks to its strong strategic location on the Vienne river, and once boasted a large amphitheatre, a forum, baths and temples. Explore what’s left of the ancient ruins as you imagine the lives that the locals used to live all those years ago. From the 11th century Limoges started to become famous for its artistic prowess, thanks to the Abbey of Saint Martial and its library. An important school of medieval music composition was based in town, but it’s another form of artistic creation that Limoges is best known for nowadays. In the latter part of the 18th century and through the 19th century, Limoges rose to prominence for its porcelain industry, recording history and producing ornate enamels that have become sought-after collectors items. Nowadays, Limoges produces more than half of all the porcelain made in France, and you can learn more about this heritage at a number of excellent museums. When you’re sightseeing make sure you pay a visit to Limoges Cathedral, the 10th century Crypt of Saint Martial, and the Limoges Fine Arts Museum. Limoges is also known for its oak barrels that are ideal for producing Cognac and Bordeaux wine, so don’t miss out on a few tasty tipples when you go out for dinner. Go for a stroll through the botanical gardens and gaze at the Roman-era bridges of Saint Martial with holidays to Limoges from Stansted Airport.
