Welcome to Nantes!
Nantes, the largest city in Brittany (West France) is located on the Loire river, at the confluence with the Erdre and the Sèvre.
Globally ranked for innovation in different sectors of the economy, it holds the title of European Green Capital.
Nantes is the sole destination that – in one single
kilometre – can bring together a walk along the banks of the
river Loire on a 12m high Grand Eléphant, a XV century castle,
a history museum that uses contemporary scenography to
conjure the past, present and future and on top of that, an artistic
trail designed by some of today’s greatest artists.
You can download here the Nantes official tourist guides to accompany you around the “cité des ducs”.
