Compiègne, not even 90 kilometers north-east from Paris, is a great place to discover a typical french city far away from the usual beaten tracks. It is also a city with a rich history because Louis XV as well as Napoleon I and Napoleon III came here for leisure and hunting. In the famous forest of Compiègne, the Armistice of the first World War was signed in 1918. Visit Compiègne and walk through the imperial city.
