The half-timbered houses that line the streets of Troyes’ old city were rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1524. Off rue Champeaux (between No 30 and 32), a stroll along tiny ruelle des Chats, as dark and narrow as it was four centuries ago, is like stepping back into the Middle Ages. You half expect a group of Shakespearean ruffians, singing drunkenly, to appear from around the corner, or a sneering wench to empty a chamber pot on your head from the top floor. The stones at intervals along the sides were installed to give pedestrians a place to stand when horses clattered by.
