The endless journey
Art shakes up the city!

Throughout Nantes, you’ll find a green line painted on the ground.

All year long, it will lead you to the most unexpected places: from a work or art by a great contemporary artist to a remarkable example of our architectural heritage, from classic sites to undiscovered treasures, from a historical side street to a contemporary building, or from a surprising view of the city to a sunset on the Loire estuary! This public collection of roughly one hundred works by major artists is one of a kind in France, inviting visitors to discover the region in all its splendour.

Every summer, the green line throughout the city grows richer with ever more exciting features: contemporary artworks, great exhibitions, street furniture to stop and rest, artistically revamped shop signs, and more. Fun awaits you on the baks of the Loire!

Le Voyage à Nantes is also a perfume inspired by the vibrant energy of the city, the magnolia, the rain and the sea spray, created by Bertand Duchaufour.
