The permanent Voyage
Art reveals up the city

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

A continued dialogue with art can endlessly renew a city. Le Voyage à Nantes does this by stirring up the imaginations of artists, architects, landscape designers, and other urban poets, resulting in a collection of more than 120 permanent artworks that can be found from the heart of downtown, out to the Ocean, along the Estuary and in Nantes’ vineyards. It promotes collections of artist-designed hotel rooms and shop signs, playgrounds, and more. 

Every summer, Le Voyage à Nantes showcases the city by bringing together roughly sixty ephemeral works, some of which have become permanent. This is how the permanent collection has grown richer with each year. 

The Voyage’s green line stretches over twenty kilometres, connecting must-see sights and artworks, and can be discovered all year round. Leave your compass or preconceived ideas of a city at home, fun awaits you on the banks 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.
