CLE visit Limoges

Arriving at Limoges Tourist Office we found our train waiting to take us on the Limoges City tour alongside over 20 CLE members.

For nearly an hour we travelled around the busy and quiet streets, whilst listening to a very interesting commentary. Too much to take it all in, but the salient points will be remembered.


We then had ample time to take lunch in any of the restaurants close  by, before taking a short walk to the Cathedral, where we were met by our very enthusiastic English speaking guide.

For the next 80 minutes we listened to, not only the history of the Cathedral but that of Limoges itself. So informative that one member said that of all the guided tours she had been on this had been the best.

We then went into the Bishops Garden and with a view across the river that was superb, our guide imparted even more information.

The day came to an end with a relaxing drink nearby before making our way back to the various parking locations. Once again we were lucky with the weather, which enhanced what was a very enjoyable day out with CLE.

    Indeed, it was a very good tour. So much so that my wife and I are planning to repeat it, but this time using the official Tourist Board documentation and electric bicycles. Then we
    can catch up on what we’ve been told, and pursue the tour at out own pace.
