What's Rennes like?

Rennes, the capital of the region of Brittany in northern France, sits on the confluence of the rivers Ille and Vilaine. This vibrant university city of Rennes, with 700,000 residents, has been called the ‘most liveable city in France’. A city of art and history, Rennes has Celtic roots and France’s second fastest growing population after Toulouse. Find accommodation in Rennes and wander around the old town’s medieval streets and see the lovely architecture: the Parliament building, Opera House, cathedral and Saint-Georges Palace are striking. Visit the Musée des Beaux Arts on the Vilaine river to see pieces by Picasso and Gauguin and an excellent Egyptian and Greek art collection. Find a place to stay near the Musée de Bretagne in the Champs Libres building, where there is also a science centre, library and planetarium. For modern art, head to contemporary art museum FRAC Bretagne. Relax in the beautiful Thabor Gardens where you’ll find an orangerie, aviary, rose garden and botanical garden. Catch events and concerts here in the summer before heading back to your Rennes hotel.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Rennes

The weather in Rennes is typically oceanic, being fairly mild in winter and generally warm in the summertime. Good transport links mean that visitors can get around easily in Rennes. Take the bus or the metro when it’s too far to walk to your destination. If you want to go at your own pace, there’s a bike-sharing system in the city called Velostar which has 900 bikes for use. If you’re going further afield from your Rennes hotel you could catch a train from Gare de Rennes railway station. It takes two hours to get to Paris with the high speed (TGV) train. The city is served by Saint-Jacques Airport which is just 7km from the centre of Rennes. For a taste of the local culinary delights go to the weekly market (Marche des Lices) on the Place des Lices.
