Arras was just meant to be a place to spend the night on our way to the Vimy Memorial. When I booked the hotel, I thought I’d read about Arras later. As soon as we drove into this quaint little town, I was pleasantly surprised. The Place des Héros is surrounded by a row of Flemish-Baroque style townhouses and a breathtaking gothic town hall. I wish we had planned to stay longer.
