Emmanuel Gregoire, Deputy Mayor of Paris, informed that it is necessary to attend to a complaint from the inhabitants of Paris. It is about securing more space of circulation in the streets of the City.
The way to achieve this is to prohibit the entry of tourist buses that circulate in the center of the city of Paris. We are talking about all the companies that have tourist buses.
We left the Offenburg station in Germany and took a local train, which was more like a tram than a train. After a journey of only 25 minutes we arrived at the train station in Strasbourg. Then the journey began.
After leaving the luggage at the hotel we went on foot to the area called Pettite France. This is a charming area, full of canals and flowers. You can see an old fortified river port where there are deposits, watchtowers, cranes, accommodation for cannons and many more things from the sixteenth and seventeenth century. The houses are germanic style of the Bavaria area.
