About Nantes

Nantes was the former capital of Brittany and, while it is not officially a part of it today, it still retains many connections and characteristics of that northern province. Château des Ducs castle still preserves the form in which it was built by two of the last rulers of independent Brittany, François II and his daughter Duchess Anne, of the fifteenth century. A huge renovation is underway to make the castle into the Museum of the History of Nantes and its Region, projected to open by 2008. The place du Commerce in the heart of a largely pedestrian area that offers a good array of diverse restaurants.


About Loire Valley

Tours in the Loire Valley serves as a good base for seeing a number of châteaux, some good museums and for visiting nearby vineyards. The town's main street is rue Nationale where sits the Musée du Compagnonnage, which documents the origins and activities of the guilds that built the châteaux, and the Musée des Vins, which gives a comprehensive look at the history, mythology and production of wine. West of rue Nationale, Tours' Old Town boasts the place St-Pierre-le-Puellier, whose medieval houses and towers are the city's showpieces.
