While you're there

Rennes is the capital of Brittany region in France. The city of Rennes can be reached by the high speed TGV from Paris in 2 short hours. Rennes is the perfect base to visit other towns of Brittany, namely the Mont Saint-Michel and Saint-Malo. The city of Rennes is a dynamic city with over 50,000 students. The city has a rich architectural heritage, convivial restaurants and quality shops. When in Rennes, check street posters to track down a fest-noz – a time-honoured ball where generations meet to dance to traditional music and to drink and snack on authentic French delicacies. Take a night out to enjoy one of these rather than a nightclub and you’ll experience the real Rennes.

In the historic centre, explore the narrow, winding streets. You’ll discover colourful half-timbered houses dating back to the 15th century, the Cathedral Saint-Pierre and the city’s defensive heritage. In Place des Lices, is held the second largest food market in France every Saturday. Other notable landmarksin Rennes are: the two royal squares, the City Hall designed by Gabriel, the architect of Louis XV, the Parliament of Brittany, the Champs Libres Centre designed by Christian de Portzamparc, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Jardin du Thabor considered as one of the most beautiful French gardens, and the Saint-Georges swimming pool with mosaics designed by Odorico.

In Rennes you are most likely to have a taste of local specialities such as galettes and crêpes, pâtés, parlementins (pastries) and cider. If you are an amateur of fine cuisine, don’t miss the Festival Gourmand.

Rennes has plenty of markets to keep your roving eye occupied. Every Saturday the central food market in the Place des Lices near the Medieval Quarter sells huge varieties of French specialties. For good value clothes, games and make-up visit the Galleries Lafayette Mall. Between Place Sainte Anne and Place de la Mairie, there are numerous pedestrian street, ideal to shop.

    It was comfortable and relaxing. We enjoyed the scenery that you would not enjoy on the train. It was also on time. We could not have asked for more. I will travel by train in and around France.

    I booked in advance and managed to obtain return first class tickets at a good price. The journeys were fast, smooth, warm, quiet and comfortable. I look forward to many more train journeys in the future.

    This an excellent fast  
  • "An enjoyable trip"    
    I enjoyed my trip on the TGV from Montparnasse to St Malo because I was able to relax, read my book and eat lunch, so there was no stress involved. The only thing I did have a bit of difficulty with was the ticket printer at the railway station in Montparnasse. I followed all the steps but the machine only printed my return ticket, not the ticket I needed that day! Luckily, however, the ticketing clerk in the office was able to find my booking and print my ticket for me, so all turned out well.  
  • "booking N problems"    
    Main problem was that with the booking reference Number of your email I couldn't print any of the SNCF  
  • "Travelling in France"    
    This was my first time travelling by train in France. At first it was a bit confusing for me, but that was due to the language barrier. I quickly got the hang of how the system works. It is very convenient and we travelled first class which is exactly as I expected it to be. Using the TGV was a great experience and I will recommend this mode of transport to all travellers.

  • "Paris - Rennes "    
    I enjoyed my travel trip to Rennes via TGV. But there was a 20 min. late when we want to take the train back to PAris. I hope it will be more punctuality next time.  
  • "Comfortable"    
    Soon and comfortable.  
  • "TGV Paris - Rennes"    
  • "No train on Sunday "    
    I could not take a train that would get me to the airport on time for a flight back to the USA. I was flying on a Sunday so I understand that it may be a low travel day.  
  • "Wonderful experitnce"    
    We went to Marseille from Paris by TGV train. We enjoyed the experience on the train.  
  • "As my expectation"    
    Comfortable, fast, and convenient. If the price is cheaper would be much better.
