Once you've checked in to your Nantes accommodation, head over to check out the Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne. This impressive historic castle, which houses the Nantes History Museum, is one of the oldest and most important buildings in the city, along with the Gothic facade of stately Nantes Cathedral. Indulge your appetite for adventure at the Jules Verne Museum, then release your inner child at Les Machines de l'Ile de Nantes, part mechanical art project and part amusement park. Gear yourself up for a ride on the Grand Elephant, a 48-ton mechanical elephant that can fit 50 passengers, or be fascinated by the mechanical aquarium carousel. Do a little shopping at the Passage Pommeraye, a beautiful and historic shopping arcade, before heading to dinner. Sample the seafood and wine, and treat yourself to a crepe or two for dessert (they were invented here, after all).
Touch down at Nantes Atlantique Airport (NTE) and take the airport shuttle into the city. In a hurry? Hop in a cab for door-to-door service to Nantes hotels. Better yet, check out Wotif’s car hire deals and you’ll have all the freedom of the open road. It's only 11 km into the city centre, and once you arrive, the city itself can be navigated easily both by the excellent public transit system and by bike.
Wotif will find you awesome deals on Nantes holiday packages, including airfares and accommodation, faster than you can eat a croissant. You just focus on what’s really important: Planning where you’re going to devour that pastry.
