Beautiful...the whole city is made of a yellow stone. Metz is medium/smallish city, everyone was really nice, but when they found out we were from the United States they wanted to know why we weren't in Paris.
We parked on this road next to our hotel. It winds up toward the highest spot in the city. After walking up this steep, narrow, cobblestone road, with forty pounds (roughly 18 kg) of luggage, it makes sense why this road would be called the "road from H. E. double hockey sticks".
