Visit the Top 10 places in Nantes with Coach Charter Europe - your bus company
Bus Company from Coach Charter Europe would like to introduce with the Nantes which  is a city in western France, which is located in eastern Brittany on the Loire and has a long tradition as a port and industrial center. The medieval castle of Nantes was once the seat of the dukes of Brittany. Today the restored building houses a multimedia museum on local history. The fortified protective walls can be walked on by visitors. This region has long been known as a place with many amazing castles, which in their glory seem to intersect with each other. One is on the river bank, the other has its own huge vineyards, but another is grand in its vertical height. To be able to judge it, you have to see for yourself, so in the following lines you can read a little insight into what might be waiting for you.

We have a couple of suggestions for places to visit in Nantes for you. These are our top 10 tips to see on your own Coach Charter Tour Bus: 

1. Les Machines de l’Île

It is a mechanical machine designed in the shape of an elephant. It was designed by 2 French artists, Francois Delaroziere and Pierre Orefice, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci. The elephant is one of the grand puppets of the mechanical machine show Les Machines, which is always in Nantes and delights tourists all year round. In the famous show of mechanical cars, visitors get the feeling that they are "alive", which is one of the reasons why tickets to the show are redeemed at an incredible rate. The graffiti wall with the built-in bus is also nearby. Nantes graffiti can be seen at every step, which gives the city a special charm. 

2. Jardin des Plantes

Classified as one of France's 'remarkable gardens,' the Jardin des Plantes contains 10,000 species in its seven hectares. The gardens are right in the center of the city, just ten minutes' walk from the Château des Ducs de Bretagne. There's no ordinary park: the Palm House is a beautiful late 19th-century metal and glass building with tropical American plants, while the three greenhouses on the sides have orchids from Africa and Asia. When you walk the paths you'll see mature trees like the 220-year-old magnolia. 

3. Château des Ducs de Bretagne

The old seat of the Dukes of Brittany is the final château on the Loire River before being emptied into the Atlantic Ocean. The fortified palace is located in the eastern part of the old town, although it is hard to miss the hefty walls and towers that encircle the refined Grand Logis where the Dukes lived. The castle was built in the 13th century and occupied for 300 years by the Dukes until it became a French royal residence in the 1500s. The courtyard and the ramparts are free to enter, but you pay to visit the history of the Nantes.

4. Passage Pommeraye

Between Rue de la Fosse and Rue Santeuil, this 1843 shopping arcade is not only a fashionable place to shop but an innovative piece of architecture and a photo-worthy sight. The passage was constructed on a steep slope and adapted to the nine-metre height difference with a clever intermediate floor between the two street levels. Passage Pommeraye is still as resplendent as it was 160 years ago, with neo-Renaissance sculpture and stonework, iron and glass roofs that flood the galleries with natural light, wrought iron lamps and handrails – not forgetting its elegant literary collection.

5. Île Feydeau

If you're exploring Île Feydeau, you might wonder why this district just south of the center is called an island, or why the streets have names like Quai Turenne when there's no sign of water. Yes, it was an island before the 1930s when one of the arms of the Loire was cut off. Until the 18th-century Feydeau was an uninhabitable marshland until a land reclamation project built a dignified quarter for the rich merchants of the city to stay. Their flat-fronted homes are magnificent, with iron balconies, mansard roofs and sculpted stone grotesques.

6. Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle

The Museum of Natural History of Nantes has a fine setting in the old town mint and has galleries for every branch of natural science: there are zoological, paleontological, mineralogical, ethnographic and a host of other collections from fields with long names, collected since the 1700s. The exhibit sure to turn heads is the fin whale skeleton in the zoology museum, more than 18 meters long and hanging from the ceiling. The Vivarium, which was installed in 1955 and recently refurbished, has a collection of terrariums with snakes and other rare reptiles.

7. Cours Cambronne

A part of the new town district established in the 18th century, Cours Cambronne is a splendid square between two 180-metre-long terraces of neoclassical mansions. Stroll down the main avenue to see the statue of Pierre Cambronne, a military general born in Nantes and wounded in the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Seventeen of the beautiful pilaster mansions on the square are listed in the inventory of French historic monuments. One that deserves special notice is the Hôtel Scheult, situated at the top of Rue Piron, which has a newly restored facade.  

8. Musée de l’Imprimerie

Nantes has had a long association with the printing press since the first title, Les Lunettes des Princes, was written by the Breton poet Jean Meschinot in 1493. The museum was founded in 1986 by master printer Sylvain Chiffoleau and typographer Robert Colombeau, and has established a remarkable collection of manual and mechanical printing presses. There are also intaglio plates, lithograph plates, dyes and traditional typing moulds. And if all that sounds baffling to you, then you can take the tour to get the inside track of the printing industry in Nantes and see how all this obscure equipment has been used. 

9. Place du Bouffay

This square is situated in the middle of Bouffay, the oldest district of Nantes. The place names, "Place du Pilori" (Pilory) or "Rue de la Juiverie" (Jewry), give you a sense of the age of this district. On the pedestrian streets you can come across half-timbered houses from the 1400's side by side with bars, crêperies and some of the city's liveliest nightspots. The square as you see it is from the 1700's, but there are evocative traces of a more distant past.  

10. Trentemoult

On the left bank of the Loire, Trentemoult is a former fishing village belonging to the town of Rezé. It's just a few minutes from the center via the Navibus ferry, and many hipsters, artists and well-to-do families from the city have settled in Trentemoult. You can navigate the labyrinth of scurrying streets with brightly painted cottages from the 18th and 19th centuries.
