To start the tour, I took time to discuss with Marieke about Valenciennes History. She taught me that we were on the old ramparts of Valenciennes, which were destroyed in 1902/1903.

The current main boulevards are the old ramparts that surrounded the city. And that’s true, if you take a look at a map of Valenciennes, you’ll see the “design” of a fortified city. Here are the kinds of information that you will get during the visit. 😉

Now, what’s going to happen with the SLOW ART TOUR? You will take time to discover works of art exhibited on the Boulevard Watteau, talking with the group and the guide about works of art and artistic history of Valenciennes (more than 50 Rome prizes for Valenciennes!). Local people – like Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux – made all works of art you will see.

For the rest, you will discover for yourself 😉

What I liked:

  • Time not too long, not too short to appreciate a work of art and sharing feelings,
  • Given answers from the guide,
  • Highlighting of local artists,
  • History of Valenciennes to start the tour,
  • The fact of taking time with works of art.
