Nantes

Venice of the West

Regarded as an art and history city, Nantes is called the Venice of the West. It's also a hub city for innovation partly due to its highly regarded and well-managed public transportation system. It is also known for its biodiversity with green initiatives that guarantee the protection of nature in the area on the Erdre River. This city welcomes your eco-tourist approach to travel with Bicloo, the self-service bicycle network offering rentals at 79 self-serve locations. Nantes is famous for its fine wine, such as Muscadet, a sweet white wine that goes well with freshly caught, regional seafood, as well as galettes, which are a heavier but less sweet version of the crêpe. Nantes is in Loire-Atlantique. Take a look at our France trip maker site to refine the details of your trip to Nantes.
