Poitiers and its surroundings : Culture and Leisure

Poitiers, a warm and lively city with many narrow alleyways situated around its historic university, one of the oldest in Europe. It is a favorite stopover for romanesque art lovers who are able to find many different reasons to stroll around and discover the town. In the north, across the Clain Valley, sports fans will be just as delighted with the lake at St-Cyr and the International Welcome Centre which includes a wide variety of sports and leisure activities.....

Futuroscope : the European Park of the Moving Images

Just outside Poitiers on a great green plain, futuristic shapes puncture the skyline. It's as if all the far fetched settings from the science fiction movies have been beamed down to earth. These are the pavilions of Futuroscope and what goes on inside them can be breathtaking. You can experience the magic of massive 3D cinema, virtual reality simulator rides and the latest in communication technologies. There are 22 of the world's largest and most exciting visual presentations, ranging from classics like Mount Everest and The Grand Canyon to the very latest in dynamic entertainement.
