City overview

A beautiful historic city in western Brittany, Rennes is a hidden gem that has fortunately managed to remain relatively undiscovered by the majority of France’s tourists. The city is characterised by ornate 19th century architecture, with many of the central areas centred upon charming cobblestoned squares. Restaurants and cafes are many, and some of the finest, of which there are quite a number, are clustered around these squares. Be sure to visit the Parlement de Bretagne and Palais Saint-Georges and the city hall for classic examples of local architecture.

The city is also a big university town, with a population of over 60,000 students. As a result, Rennes has a very vibrant night life, with the acclaimed Rue Saint Michel boasting only bars up and down both sides of the street. Friday and Saturday nights are particularly busy, while Thursday evening partying is a distinctly student event.

Alternatively, visit the Thabor. This park has a stunning collection of plant life, including a large flower bed populated by hundreds of species of roses as well as a range of tropical, African and European trees. Besides beautiful and rare plants, the park is also home to a population of budgies. There is also a wide range of museums and art galleries, with each more than worth taking the time to explore. For a distinctly ‘French’ experience, attend the large Saturday morning food market from 6am to 1.30pm. Stalls are varied, and include everything from fruit and vegetables to a vast array of fish, crêpes, galettes and fresh meat. Other delicacies such as wine, snails and cheeses are also available.

Further afield, make the trek to Mont Saint-Michel, a granite island located northeast of Rennes in the region of Basse-Normandie. The third most-visited monument in France, the highlight and main attraction of Mont Saint-Michel is venerable abbey of Mt St Michel.
