Sights

Key sights in this predominantly residential neighbourhood are mainly aimed at history buffs. Find them around the Jardin Public in the northeast, and ancient place des Martyrs et de la Résistance heading south.

Eating

Dining in this select district is chic, modern and concentrated on a trio of parallel streets: rue Abbé de l’Épée, rue Lafaurie Monbadon and rue du Palais Gallien. The price range veers more towards upmarket than budget.

Drinking & Nightlife

Night owls should head elsewhere. Drinking is of the quaffing-coffee-in-style variety rather than drinking until dawn.

Shopping

This is hardly a thriving shopping district, although the eatery-peppered streets north of place Gambetta enjoy a handful of small, independent, specialist boutiques.
