Gateway to the Gulf
Founded over 2,000 years ago, Vannes is a vacation harbor town with beaches, shopping, museums, and gardens, as well as interesting medieval city gates and timber-framed houses scattered throughout its Old Town. Linked to the Atlantic in Brittany--go just outside the walls of the village for cafes on the port side, and go inside the walls to find boutiques, local seafood restaurants with oysters, and delicious crêperies with sweet and savory local fillings. Galettes, which are a heavier but less sweet version of the crêpe, are a necessary eat in Vannes, and there are a variety for every member of your group, from carnivores to vegetarians. Natural activities abound in this port town, with camping, spa waters, and beaches. Set sail on a tour of the islands of the Gulf of Morbihan at the mouth of two rivers, the Marle and the Vincin, for an exciting way to view the city from the water.
