This Optional Day has been cancelled due to COVID-19
You can now book the Optional Day (Saturday, 5th December) to the city center of Nantes.

The eclecticism of its landscapes and architecture, its dynamism and the diversity of its cultural events, along with the quality of the environment which won it the label of European Green Capital, have regularly placed Nantes at the top of the best cities to live in.

Nantes, a city where art is everywhere

Nantes stands out on the national and European stage through its exemplary cultural policy. The city that was home to Jules Verne, and that inspired the Surrealists and Jacques Demy, continues to feed the dreams of contemporary artists, like the international street theatre company Royal de Luxe, Dominique A, Madeon, and Christine and the Queens, all of whom find their natural inspiration here.
Especially in Nantes, where one can drift down a street from a public work of art to a remarkable example of the city’s architectural heritage, or from artist-revamped shop signs to contemporary buildings.

Nantes, a city in constant expansion

As the 6th largest city in France, the metropolitan region of Nantes consists of 24 municipalities spread over 523 km2 (201 sq. miles) and 609 000 inhabitants. It is number two in the country in terms of job growth, and was voted to head Eurocities, a network working to defend the interests of urban agglomerations before Europe’s ruling bodies.

Nantes, green capital

With 57m2 (614 sq. feet) of greenery per inhabitant, Nantes has over 100 parks and gardens.

Nantes is tasty

The number and variety of restaurants on offer in Nantes has never been so exciting. New talent has joined the chefs who have already established their presence on the culinary scene, while links with local farmers continue to develop, and wine lists across the board reflect the dynamism of Nantes’ vineyards… (https://www.nantes-tourisme.com/en)

Learn about the city’s history thanks to a walking tour in the historical neighborhood of the city. You will discover the medieval history of the city in the Bouffay neighborhood and advance in time by walking in the Passage Pommeray, the Graslin neighborhood and the Ile Feydeau.

Les Machines de l’ile de Nantes

Les Machines de l’ile de Nantes

Les Machines de l’île” are a totally unprecedented artistic project. Born from the imaginations of François Delarozière and Pierre Orefice, it is at the crossroads of Jules Verne’s « invented worlds », the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci, and of Nantes’ industrial history, on the exceptional site of the former shipyards. It houses a laboratory and a whole bestiary of machines. Explanations in english will be given by guides before the visit.

O Deck Restaurant

O Deck Restaurant

O Deck is located on a floating barge, the Nantilus. The place offers a panomaric view over the city and the river Loire. O Deck also offers an innovative wine cellar, more than 200 different wines. The « boat » Nantilus has not always been part of the landscape of Ile de Nantes. This barge measures 75 meters long, it has been built in 2010 in Saint-Nazaire and dragged towards Nantes by the river Loire.
