With those days firmly behind it, St Etienne is now a city of whitewashed façades, dotted with parks and quaint squares. Perfect for sipping an espresso and watching the world go by.
St Etienne's pride in its heritage is there to see in its many museums. The Musée d'Art et d'Industrie is a particular favourite.
For the food lovers, book a table at the Michelin starred "nouvelle" restaurant run by the young Stephane Laurier who has held the coveted star since 2002.
