Poitiers is the capital of the Vienne department in western France. With a little over 100,000 residents, 25 per cent of which are students, it's a quaint, historically preserved hilltop town, situated at the meeting point of the Boivre and Clain Rivers.
European tourists tend to visit picturesque, medieval Poitiers more than international tourists, interested, ironically, in the cutting edge technology of Futuroscope, a theme park of the audio visual, featuring many 3D and even 4D cinemas, examples of which can be seen nowhere else in the world.
Each year, the park picks a new theme with which to stun visitors. In past years, robots, dinosaurs and the cosmos have been the focus.
