Visit Rennes for culture and history

As the capital of Brittany, Rennes has a lot of historical significance. Rennes was an important city in Roman times. You can still visit the Parliament of Brittany, which was active until the Revolution. There are many other sights for the historical explorer, like the Modelaises Gates in the medieval fortress. Rennes is particularly famous for its half-timbered houses. And of course, don't forget the magnificent Rennes Cathedral.

For more culture, you can view the Fine Arts Museum's contemporary artworks. But it also has works dating back to ancient Egypt if you like your art with some maturity! For outdoor relaxation, try the Thabor Park, with its beautiful rose garden and aviary.


Attractions beyond Rennes

There are so many things to do in Rennes you might not leave the city, but if you do, there are more treats in store. Visit the ancient port of Saint-Malo and its city walls. Nearby Cancale is also worth a trip, particularly if you like oysters. Just 40 minutes from Rennes is the walled town of Vitré. It's a gem for history lovers, having changed little in 500 years.


Nature lovers will enjoy the Brocéliande Forest. Romantic types will like it too, as it's associated with Arthurian legend. The Vilaine River is perfect for leisurely walks. You can stop off at charming villages and river ports along the way for some refreshments. Other natural attractions include the Gannedel marshes, Île-aux-Pies cliffs and Corbinières valley.
