Welcome to Vannes
Overlooking the Golfe du Morbihan, Vannes is one of the unmissable towns of Brittany. Spectacular fortifications encircle Vannes' meandering alleys and cobbled squares, and lead down to a sparkling marina lined with cafes and townhouses. The city still preserves much of its medieval atmosphere, though it's not a museum piece but a vibrant place with a lively bar and restaurant scene year-round. Vannes is also an excellent base for exploring the glittering island-studded Golfe du Morbihan and the mesmerising neolithic sites in the vicinity.
