Vitry-le-François is the meeting point of different communication channels: river crossing (3 channels: Marne-Rhine, Marne to the Saône, lateral to the Marne), rail junction (line Paris-Strasbourg-Lyon-Calais Méditérannée), crossroads (N4 Paris-Strasbourg to Saint-Dizier and the south of France in Reims and RN44 to Vitry-le-François).

A little history ... Formerly, Vitry-en-Perthois, this ancient fortress was dismantled in the late 12th century.

"

The completion of the new Vitry was entrusted to Italian architect Marini. During the Second World War the city was razed to 90%. New town, completely rebuilt, it still continues its development.
