Nantes is one of Europe’s most creative and arty cities. It has re-created itself after the loss of its naval maritime role. It has history as the capital of medieval Brittany with a mighty castle, fine and historic cathedral – and an enormously vigorous life along the banks of the River Loire. But above all make sure you take a boat trip across to up-beat Trentemoult and on no account miss the amazing Machines of the Ile de Nantes including the world’s most amazing and fabulous Elephant puppet – all forty feet tall of it ! These guides are both just short of thirty minutes each in length and capture the life of this vibrant city.
