While on your next trip to Nantes, consider our Nantes car hire services as your means of personal transportation. Nantes is the country’s 6th largest city and considered to be one of the most desirable places to live in France, especially for the younger set who enjoy the arts and simply don’t want to live in Paris. As far as the tourist is concerned this means that the night-scene is rather lively.

The city is served by the Nantes Airport which is located to the south of the city. From there you can reach the city via bus lines, tram routes or of course taxis but your best choice by far would be to employ our Nantes car rental services and have a car of your choice ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.

Once you’re settled in the city you will notice that there are quite a few attractions and sights that you’ll not want to miss, starting with the Cathedral Saints Peter and Paul. The building of this Gothic cathedral started back in 1434 but didn’t manage to properly finish till the end of the 19th century. Interesting to note is that the crypt is actually older than the starting point of the building process, it is from the 11th century and it now houses a museum of religions.

Then there’s the Chateau des Ducs, which houses the Museum of history of Nantes and its Region and nearby is the place du Commerce which is a mostly pedestrianized area which offers a good array of restaurants.

The Passage Pommeraye is a similar experience, it’s a passage built between two streets with different elevations which now contains a varied and interesting array of shops and cafes.

Nantes holds a special type of significance for fans of Jules Verne, as this is where the great author was born and there’s a museum dedicated to him which is housed in his native house.

These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Nantes so make sure to consider our Nantes car hire services in order to enjoy your stay there to the maximum.
