My article on a weekend in Périgueux, published in France Magazine
Périgueux, Dordogne’s attractive capital, has a history that goes back more than 2,000 years and can readily be experienced as you make your way across town. To the west, impressive ruins attest to its Gallo-Roman origins, while to the east half-timbered houses and Renaissance mansions mingle with monuments in the vielle ville. There’s plenty to make you pause and linger, whether it’s the ancient arches of a Roman amphitheatre, a charming boutique on a picturesque corner or a chalkboard menu tempting you with the region’s cuisine.
