Rennes unveils

Rennes preamble

 

City tour in Rennes to discover its diversity Private tours in Rennes during special events (here Christmas lights)

 

In addition to what "Rennes at a glance" will have shown us, we will find out how Condate (Gallic name for Rennes, city close to these indomitable Gauls in Asterix and Obelix) expanded at the confluence of Ille and Vilaine rivers.

We will take some time to walk around the narrow streets and squares inherited from Middle Age and find out more about the stories many facades have to tell us. Plenty of noteworthy sights. They will tell us how the city expanded and changed through the ages. Going beyond the city centre we will stroll along the piers and gardens. It will be a great opportunity to observe various styles representative for the new art of living which combine modernity and free spirit in historic surroundings.
