Poitiers and the great adventure of Futuroscope

Poitiers is a small town in France, next to Bourdeaux and Paris and bathed by the rivers Clain and Boivre. It’s a university city with a rich medieval patrimony, and the new architecture has known how to get adapted to these antique monuments in a convivence in harmony. It contains several interesting churchs and cathedrals, although most of the people who come to visit this humble town have another idea in mind: the Futuroscope.

In addition to this, they offer a unique show in the world called “Dance with robots” to experience your first robot party. You’re placed in the hand of a giant robot on the dance floor and the excitement is for sure! You fly with them while music from DJ Martin Solveig is being played. But apart from these spectacles, Futuroscope also has an educational side to learn and discover a new world in this old world called Earth.
