Île de Nantes

All the bridges that span the Loire lead to Île de Nantes… So, there’s no reason not to take advantage of this spot, with its ever-changing landscapes and endless options for walks and bike rides. From East to West, North to South, up and down – any way you choose, it’ll never be the wrong way! The river, nature, architecture, the island’s industrial past and contemporary artworks create a comfortable itinerary that is ideal for getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, whether alone, with family or with friends.

Useful tip: Follow the banks of the Loire, but don’t hesitate to break away and try other roads less travelled where a surprise may lay waiting right around the corner…
