“Le Voyage à Nantes is above all a project for an entire region, and its wide range of tourist activities is an expression of this region. If we have been hurt in our architectural heritage by the war, deindustrialization and the filling of the Loire and Erdre Rivers, we are lucky enough today to enjoy a cultural panorama of such breadth and diversity that other regional capitals envy us. This goes beyond our great monuments, fascinating sites, and diversity of attractions, bringing together over twenty cultural partners and projects from the city’s park services, local businesses and associations.
Visiting a city is never simply a question of walking around with a map. It is also an experience where one observes its movements and listens to its soft murmuring. We have tried very hard to offer surprising viewpoints and perspectives on our city that might bring out its unique poetry and personality. Art is everywhere, giving Nantes the very unique image of a city Surrealists loved, where every street corner offers the unexpected.”
