“A memorable day in this nice little town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We visited this atmospheric town a Monday in July. We went for a stroll and admired the charming buildings and the nice atmosphere, sat down in one of the many street cafés and had crepes, ice cream and coffee. There are also a lot of exciting small shops to look into :-)

“AT the heart of the old town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

Lively atmospheric square at heart of old Town Vannes, good place to sit and relax enjoy a cup of coffee or aperitif and watch the world go by. A great place to take photographs of the mediaeval architecture that is the attraction of the old Town.

“Medieval square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

This is a small square surrounded by 14th/15th century building all in good order. It is a very popular tourist spot hence always crowded but still provides good photo opportunities. There are often a street performers there. On any visit to Vannes, it should not be missed.Vannes

“Beautiful Medieval Square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

A quite beautiful medieval square surrounded by timbered houses. From this period quite a few buildings are preserved in comparison to cities such as Nantes or even Rennes. The whole city is well worth strolling through and the distances are not great between squares and beautiful buildings.
