Rennes, the capital city of Brittany in France; It is often overlooked as a stop-over to the grand Mont Saint-Michel, which is an hour away from Rennes. I have to admit though; it might not worth an overnight stay. But it has something unique to offer for a lightly populated city.
A stroll down the “Rue Saint Michel” gives you an idea of how vibrant nightlife might have been for party lovers. Take a visit to “Parc du Thabor” in spring to reminisce the dazzling sight of full flowers bloom. And wandering off to “Rue le Bastard” reminds me of how much I love shopping.
The classic architectural style in this town is very much influenced by some of the most popular sites such as “Parliament of Brittany”, “Saint-Georges Palace”, “City Hall”, “Opera of Rennes”, “Place de la République” and the memorable civilian homes in “Champ Jacquet”.
Customize your trip to Rennes and Mont Saint-Michel for a 2 days 1 night tour. You have no idea how much it is different from Paris. Rennes is easily accessible by train from Paris in 2 hours.
