Photographer's Note

Back to Verdun.
Very brief passage in this city, just a break on the long road to Caen to Strasbourg.
Enough to enjoy a pleasant town along the Meuse, surrounded by gardens, with a marina in the heart of the city giving it an air of resort...
A city recently renovated, with a pedestrian area which is a beautiful blend of modernity and tradition. Visitors can leisurely gaze at the town’s architecture, in particular the pretty Art Nouveau-style building fronts, created after the 1st World War.

Verdun is also clearly the terrible battle during the First World War. A city known in all the world - whose name is, after Paris, the French city's most quoted - and that is the symbol of the 14-18 War and beyond, from all wars.
Verdun concentrates alone fifteen major sites to visit in the city center, on the battlefield and around the city to trace its history.
