Sophisticated, well-heeled and lively, Nantes effortlessly combines its rich history and youthful energy. Its dolce vita, historic heritage, cultural exuberance and the masterful rehabilitation of the Island of Nantes (île de Nantes), where old hangars rub shoulders with striking contemporary housing and which has attracted a record number of inhabitants, entice more and more and tourists every day.
