Tour workshops with expert guides and see outstanding collections of porcelain like the Museum Adrien Dubouche. A visit to the Four des Casseaux where porcelain has been fired since 1889 is recommended for any lover of beautiful tableware.2 Learn about the French Resistance
Limoges and the surrounding region was a key hub during French resistance to the Nazis and a superb museum celebrates the activity of the partisan force. A period biplane is one of the treats here, but there is plenty of fascinating material, from archive film to touching love letters.3 Stroll around the Museum of Fine Arts
A city break is hardly complete without some world-class art, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Limoges really delivers. Along with a huge array of ceramics, the museum also has a more unexpected Egyptian exhibit that is not to be missed. Open Monday, Wednesday and Sunday.4 Head to medieval herb garden
When the sun shines, the city has plenty of green space to enjoy, and none more interesting than the Jardin de l'Eveche, which hosts a huge collection of herbs. Learn about medieval poisons (and cures) and just take in the smells and sights of a herbarium in all of its glory.5 Wander around the Station
Whether travellers are transferring to the train after their flight or not, the railway station is an architectural wonder. Built in 1929, the station resembles a cathedral or monastery with a splendid copper dome, but has the lavish interior of a top-class hotel. Grab a coffee and people watch in style.
