Nantes city guide

Feel like French royalty in Nantes with a visit to the Dukes of Brittany Castle after a magical ride on a mechanical elephant. Sip sweet Muscadet wine at converted biscuit factory Lieu Unique; then head out for more tasting in the sinewy Loire Valley’s vineyards.

The History Museum of Nantes, located in the Castle, invites you to learn more about the history of this amazing town. Nearby the Castle, the medieval "Bouffay" district allows the visitors to admire picturesque timber-framed, half-timbered and corbelled houses.

Take time to visit the beautiful gothic cathedral which houses the grave of Anne of Brittany’s parents. Reach the "Graslin" square to have a break in "La Cigale", a lovely brasserie from 1900. If you’re found of shopping, stroll in the "Crébillon" street which leads to the magnificent neo-classic "Passage Pommeraye".

The art lovers should visit the Fine Arts Museum, one of the richest in France.

At lunch time, a host of local restaurants awaits you in the nearby Bouffay district. Walk into this medieval area and have a look at the belfry crowned with angels of the Sainte-Croix Church.

End your day by a dinner at La Cigale, a classified monument which dates back to the 1900’s and located just opposite the Opera Graslin. For over a century, no famous artist has ever missed a detour to this brasserie when he is in town.

  • "A great trip"

    We enjoyed the trip from Paris to Nantes. As tourists in France it gave us an unrivalled view of the countryside and time to enjoy our surroundings. The service was spot on time which is always greatly appreciated by travellers, so thanks.  
  • "good booking in advance."

    Thank you for arranging soon our seats closed to "restaurant lounge"  
  • "Nice train but to narrow"

    I did bought a 1st class ticket. The train was beutiful, but it was much to narrow. My legs did not have much chans to stretch during this two hours jouney. I think the comfort should have been better in this class.  
  • "Lovely Trip After Long Day"

    After a long day of work preceded with an overnight trip for six and a half hours, it was a great winding down trip on the train to Paris. Quiet, calm, clean, and punctual.  
  • "Nice trip"

    Hi This was a nice trip and also train was so comfortable. I cannot say the same thing for returning trip. Train was so dirty even the seats and head holders. I had to cover my seat with my coat. Kind Regards.  
  • "Montparnasse Station"

    The TGV trip itself was very comfortable and convenient. However, I thought that Montparnasse Station was very inconvenient, considering waiting places. It was a very cold day, and we arrived about 30 minutes early, but had a difficult time staying out of the cold.  
  • "Nice ride, but tres cher!"

    I really enjoyed my ride on the TGV from CDG to Nantes. It was very comfortable, and I slept amazingly the entire way. However, I would say that there should be a cheaper price for upgrades. I purchased a coach ticket months ago online which was 56€ I believe, and the director on the platform directed me to an entrance that was for 1st class for some reason. Well being unfamiliar with the inner workings of the train and being extremely exhausted from a long flight as well, I just sat in first class, plus I had heavy luggage that I didn't want to haul through the train. So when they checked tickets, he pointed out that I was in the wrong section, and so I offered to upgrade thinking it would be just an extra 20€-30€. I paid 50€, so thus it's like I paid over 100€ for 1st class 1 way trip. I'm new here so I don't know if that sounds right, but it just seemed on the expensive side. Otherwise despite the price, it was really enjoyable.  
  • "quick, but a bit expensive"

    quick, but a bit expensive ... which is alwazs the case with TGV. :-D  
  • "Business Trip"

    Cars were clean and well appointed. Smooth, quiet and on time. Overall, a very pleasant journey.  
  • "First rate experience"

    It was a pleasure to travel by rail. The train left on time, it was smooth and comfortable and the voyage interesting for me as a passenger from another country. Best still it is less expensive and more enjoyable than planes. Highly recommended.  
  • " A splendid form of travel"

    The trip was exceptionally comfortable and convenient, and I thoroughly enjoyed travelling through the French countryside with no worries about traffic, airports, time constraints, etc. I will definitely use this method of travel again. The departure station was very conveniently located to the Nantes station and the drop off at the airport was simple and it was easy to proceed from there. Thank you. The announcements on the train were comprehensive.  
  • "TGV Trip CDG to NANTES "

    This TGV trip was overall very good. Two areas of improvement shouldl be considered. The announcements regarding next stations or the train changing its configuration by reducing cars with some continuing on and others being split off was very hard to understand for anyone who did not speak French. This was because the conductor did not give much information in English, did not spoek clearly and the speakers in the cars are of poor quality so his words were very hard to understand. This naturally can cause increased stress on the traveler if he/she is worried about whether ot not they are still in the correct car to reach the planned destination. Overall the experience was very good with comfortable seating, clean cars and trains that ran on time so there was no worry about getting to the airport for the return flight on time.  
  • "South African in France"

    The overall trip was very good. The only complaint I have is that announcements were not made in English (only French) on my trip from Aeroport CDG to Nantes, so I constantly had to ask fellow passengers to translate for me, just to make sure that I wasn't missing something important. And from Nantes back to Aeroport CDG, the announcements were very soft, so even though there was an announcement in English, I still missed out on important info and almost got off at the wrong station. Other than that, I had a comfortable trip!  
  • "Met all expectations"

    Train arrived/departed on time and was as comfortable as expected. We rode "first class" for the same price as second, but I'm not sure the real difference. It was comfortable in terms of temperature, seats, etc. I'm not sure if there was Wifi or other amenities as I didn't try. Trip was fast and I have absolutely no complaints.
