Conference evening event

Thursday, 6 June at 7:15 p.m.

The evening will start with a guided tour of Nancy’s mediaeval city: you will discover the medieval and renaissance old town as well as Place Stanislas and Place de la Carrière, which date back to the XVIIIth century, and which were inscribed on UNESCO’s world heritage list in 1983.

This will be followed by dinner in the prestigious halls of the old government palace, which also dates back to the XVIIIth century, and from which the Arc Héré and Place Stanislas can be seen.

Practical information:

  • 7:15 p.m.: rendezvous at Place Stanislas, in front of the statue
  • 7:30 p.m.: start of the guided tour, in small groups, with tour guides
  • 8:30 p.m.: dinner at the government palace
