Introducing Angers

This lively riverside city was the historical seat of the powerful dukes of Anjou and the Plantagenets and is now famous for its tapestries: the 14th-century Tenture de l’Apocalypse in the city’s château and the 20th-century Chant du Monde at the Jean Lurçat museum. A bustling old town, with many pedestrianised streets and a thriving cafe culture, makes it an interesting western gateway to the Loire Valley.
