Rennes The Essential

With 60 000 students providing plenty of animation, the regional capital of Brittany has an air of dynamism with the emphasis on culture. Rennes has also preserved its narrow and twisting medieval streets. They miraculously survived a huge fire in 1720. Its two royal squares, public buildings and numerous grand residences give the city an elegant solemnity.
