Next up on the itinerary: brush up on your military savvy at The Army Museum, don't miss a visit to Le Trocadero et son esplanade, engage your brain at Musee des Arts et Metiers, and wander the streets of Latin Quarter.

Nantes — 4 nights

Venice of the West

Regarded as an art and history city, Nantes is called the Venice of the West.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Musee des Blindes and Chateau d'Angers. Kids will enjoy Le Cadre Noir and Jardin des Plantes. Venture out of the city with trips to Cathedrale Saint-Maurice d'Angers (in Angers) and Chateau du Plessis-Mace (in Longuenee-en-Anjou). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedrale de Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul, shop like a local with Passage Pommeraye, and explore the historical opulence of Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne.
