An interesting way to see some of the cities through which the river Loire passes is to hop aboard a boat and explore every nook and cranny. You should take advantage of magnificent views. Each city seems different from the banks of the river. Passing though all its tributaries, you will discover the industrial and commercial history of Nantes, medieval castles, Erdre Park, the fascinating story of the monks who built Marais Poitevin, the Mayenne and Sarthe, which are stately homes. It's a great way to see all the parts of the Pays de la Loire in one trip. And if you are late, don't worry, you can make your own atmosphere dining on the deck. A different journey not to be missed.
