Nantes Travel guide
Nantes : Michelin's recommendations
The historic capital of the dukes of Britanny, Nantes is simultaneously an artistic gem, a great industrial centre and a university town. The port, shared with Donges and Saint-Nazaire, sprawls along the Loire estuary. Aside from shipbuilding and agroalimentary production, local industry excels in various niche sectors. A far cry from the slave trade that made the town so prosperous under the Ancien Régime and gave it its current appearance.
