Nantes – The range of its landscapes and architecture, its dynamism and the many cultural events, along with the quality of the environment which won it the label of European Green Capital, have regularly placed Nantes at the top of the best cities to live in.

“The city that was home to Jules Verne, and that inspired the Surrealists and Jacques Demy, continues to feed the dreams of contemporary artists, like the international street theatre company Royal de Luxe, Dominique A, Madeon, and Christine and the Queens, all of whom find their natural inspiration here.
Especially in Nantes, where one can drift down a street from a public work of art to a remarkable example of the city’s architectural heritage, or from artist-revamped shop signs to contemporary buildings. All you have to do is follow the green line on the ground to discover the essential spots along this cultural itinerary. Every summer, this circuit is revived and expanded with temporary or definitive public art installations.
As a city filled with art and history, Nantes possesses: 1 national theatre, 36 theatres and concert venues, including the Zénith Nantes Métropole, the only Memorial to the Abolition of Slavery in France, a 20-meter tall ocean-themed Carrousel des Mondes Marins, 14 museums, the Estuaire Nantes , Saint-Nazaire open-air museum, as well as a dozen festivals (La Folle Journée, Les Rendez-vous de l’Erdre, Scopitone, le Festival des 3 continents…) and more.” www.nantes-tourisme.com
