Brest : Michelin's recommendations
Brest’s majestic harbour reflects the town’s timeless marriage to the sea: the port, which has for centuries been home to the navy, also services ferries and cruise liners. Capital of oceanography, its academic institutions are home to some 60% of the world’s specialists in this field, and its Océanopolis complex draws large numbers of visitors. All in all, an impressive comeback for a town that was virtually destroyed during the Second World War.
