sur Orléans

Hi,

I wonder why is it "sur Orléans" and not "à Orléans" ?

Hello Thy,

The preposition 'sur' has many meanings and here it means 'in the direction of' Orléans, so it might be in Orléans itself but the person searching for an apartment would probably accept nearby.

Bonne Continuation !
