Racing Capital

Located on the Sarthe River, Le Mans has beautiful gothic cultural reminders of the past with a gloriously restored old city made popular as the backdrop for movie production. Now the capital of the Sarthe department and part of the Pays de la Loire region, the town is perhaps most famous as the host to the 24 Hours of Le Mans sports car racing since 1923. Place de la Republique is the modern city center, whereas the old heart of the city called Cite Plantagenet is behind Place des Jacobins. Various shops, including the Centre Jacobins shopping center, bars, and restaurants dot the 20-minute walk between the two areas. When you get hungry, be sure to try rillettes, a kind of boiled pork pate that is very tasty on a fresh baguette. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Le Mans and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
