Dudes, news flash. France is old. Like OLD old. Never have I been more aware of that fact than when hanging out in the Poitou-Charantes region. History is oozing everywhere you look. It's pretty spectacular.
Poitiers takes in all of that old and in turn radiates with all the appeal that can bring.
On our day out there, we mixed things up a bit as we already had some sense of what we wanted to see. Instead of focusing on just one of the walks, we picked at certain parts of two of them.
If you're in the region, be sure to stop in to the old town of Poitiers and lose yourself in all that ancient!
