The old city of Orleans contains many fine buildings and churches and has an ambient atmosphere. One of the narrow streets has fantastic graffiti representing the voice of the future. Unfortunately, most of the restaurants and bars are tasteless, a mismatch with the beautiful surroundings.

The central of Orléans with narrow stoned streets is not very large but really beautiful. The are no cars and pedestrians can choose from several restaurants and small shops. Best part of city by far.

Sorry for the late reply, have been travelling a lot lately. Shops usually close around 18:00 in the downtown core. Some grocery / convenience stores are open until 19:00 or 20:00
