The Nancy train station is only 5 - 10 minute walk from Place Stanislas at 3, Place Thiers. In summer 2007 the TGV, the famous French high speed train, will start connecting Nancy with Paris (90 minutes only!!!) and Karlsruhe! For more information on that issue, have a look at this website: http://www.tgvesteuropeen.com
While we did sightseeing our own way we saw this little train more than once: it is a multilanguage sightseeing tour that lasts about 45 minutes and gives you a nice overview of either Place Stanislas and the old part of town or the Art Nouveau quarter of Nancy.
The train leaves just outside the Trimphal Arch on Place de la Carriere.
Do have a look at their website to find out about times, languages and fares.
Nancy is easily accessible by car. The highways A4 and A31 pass by Nancy and being a large city you can drive around the town itself without any problem. There are plenty of parking spaces available - even in the city center. Just follow the signs!
express train from Paris - takes around 2 hours
but if you wanna see the view outside, bus or cars would be the choice for your
cars- no traffic jam!
Drive, I did! :) I absolutely love to just drive around...anywhere that I can find an open road, few cars, no speed limit and great views.
