Follow the green line under your feet and drift through this 10-mile trail, with its thirty stops, from le lieu unique to the western tip of the île de Nantes. Along the way, let yourself be guided from a public work of art in a random side street to a remarkable element of our architectural heritage, from classic sites to little-known treasures, from an historical back alley to contemporary architecture, and from a surprising view of the city to an incredible sunset on the Loire estuary.
Every summer, Nantes gets a little more animated than usual so that, with or without the sun, coming to breathe in the air and atmosphere of the city becomes addictive! Our yearly event offers you the chance to visit installations in the heart of public spaces, exhibitions in artistic venues and heritage sites, or new places to socialize and meet people.Travel to Nantes
