A journey to Nantes
You thought you knew the
westernmost urban centre in Europe ?
The metropole is one of the major cultural, artistic and creative pole in France but you haven’t seen anything yet… Château des ducs de Bretagne, lieu unique, Nantes-Angers Opera house, the Hangar à bananes exhibition place, The Machines de l’île, the Memorial museum dedicated to the Abolition of slavery, the open-air museum of Estuaire, La Fabrique, the festivals, the heritage…
Le Voyage à Nantes would like to make you discover this scattered monument in one single tour that makes of Nantes a sought-after destination, as a city of art and culture.
From June 15th
to Sept. 2nd 2012
Art turns Nantes upside down !
To celebrate this new tour that we offer all year long, Le Voyage à Nantes invites you during summer 2012 to discover a city overrun by art in every corner, a new and unexpected city, transformed, festive day and night. The streets of Nantes, the restaurants, the hotels are changing thanks to the teams of Plastic arts interventions (Brigades d’Interventions Plastiques) and art derogates from the ordinary.
