Place Saint-Melaine, 35000 Rennes, France
07:30 am - 08:30 pm
This is one of the best garden parks you’ll ever see. Built into Rennes’ highest hill, it’s not very large – only about ten hectares – but even so, it has a great wealth of plants. The park gets its name from Mt. Tabor in Israel, the place where Christians believe Jesus was transfigured. Exotic trees, fountains, circul...

Place du Parlement de Bretagne 35000 Rennes France
11:00 am - 05:00 pm
This was the court of Justice during France’s old regime. Today, you’ll only find the last building of the parliament still standing; it houses the court of justice. The interior décor is very royal, Parisian, and 17th century. The gilded wood panelling is superb. Then Grand Chamber, with its French style ceilings, is exquisite. It’s a beautiful, beautiful palace.

In 1720, a fire raged through Rennes and burnt most of the old city down. There are still some of the really old buildings around though. You’ll find random groups of half-timbered houses around Place Ste-Anne.

13 Rue Pierre le Baud, 35000 Rennes, France

Escaping dungeons remains a past time lost to history (or confined to video games). But you can experience just a bit of the same thrill in this terrific puzzle room challenge. Don’t be afraid of cramped or dark spaces. The handling crew is great. Just make sure you go with friends – it’s better.

2 Rue Saint-Sauveur, 35000 Rennes, France
09:30 am - 06:00 pm
This lovely neo-classical 19th century Roman Catholic Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Rennes. It’s not the first building on the site – the first cathedral here was built in the 6th century. From the outside, it looks sombre and granite. It’s when you step in though, that the sheer sumptuous decorations blow you mind &n...
