These regions, in the North East of France, border Switzerland, Germany, Luxembourg, and Belgium. They're easy to reach, and wonderful areas to drive around, visiting the towns, tasting the food and wine. I'll start with photos of Metz, the capital of Lorraine. The town square, a few steps from the Cathedral, is filled with cafes and restaurants. Note the crown of anti-pigeon spikes. Art Nouveau architecture mixes nicely with the older styles.
