Heritage Walk of the French Quarters in Pondicherry

You’ll first notice that the cobbled streets, tree-lined promenades and brightly coloured villas are distinctly European. As you walk down Rue Romain Rolland, the white colonnaded details on the facades and smell of fresh bread escaping from nearby bakeries, are further signs that you have arrived in the French Quarter of Pondicherry. 

The former French colony has much of its heritage and influence preserved within this city on the east coast of the country. With a local guide, you’ll discover the history of this small slice of France inside India, as you enter the old colonial churches and stroll along its wide sandy beaches.
