The best things to do in Nantes



Are you planning your holiday and do not know what to do in Nantes? Don't worry, there are lots of things to see in Nantes. The city is a mix of traditional, modern, and science fiction, so there's no way you'll be bored.

You can start your visit at the Place Royale, a square that connects the two parts of the city -- the new and the old. This is one of the places to visit in Nantes where there are tourists and locals, and is a great spot to start the day with a coffee or finish the day with a good wine. The historic town should be next on your list of Nantes attractions. Many of the places to see in Nantes are in this area. The Saint Peter and Paul Cathedral, the Basilica of San Nicolas, Eglise Saint Croix
(with its tower) and the town hall are many things to do in Nantes that are in the center. The Castle of the Dukes of Brittany is also one of the most interesting attractions in Nantes; it is a great medieval fortress that towers over the rest of the city.

If you're interested in science fiction and looking for Nantes activities, head to the
Isle of Nantes, an artistic center which is constantly changing. You can visit the HAB Galerie, dedicated to modern art and machines, and the Marine Worlds Carousel. This is a place to admire strange and incredible structures of animals and fantastic creatures inspired by the worlds of Jules Verne. Literature lovers should put the Jules Verne Museum on their list of stuff to do in Nantes. To end the day, there's
nothing better than a dinner with regional specialties and local wine. If you're not too tired, take advantage and enjoy the nightlife of the city.
