Gateway to Brittany
Brittany’s highly civilised capital city is the ideal jumping-off point for a Breton road tour – with historic coastal towns from Quimper to Brest within just a few hours’ drive. Stay in town and there’s plenty to do. From space and astronomy to local colour, culture and history, Rennes has museums well worth a visit – and a Beaux Arts gallery to boot, not to mention a grand cathedral and an old town full replete with medieval houses. Rennes is also on the TGV network for fast regional and national rail connections.
