A really lovely place to visit; many narrow cobbled streets with beautiful buildings and some amazing architectural features. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. The cathedral is worth a visit too. I would definitely recommend visiting Le Mans for a day, it's a real hidden gem.

A hidden gem - well worth a look around. Worth taking the little train which takes you round all the back streets

The old town is nice to walk around and visit the local restaurants or just have a beer. The architecture is very well maintained and interesting to the eye

It's like stepping into the world of the 3 Musketeers & Harry Potter. The children (14,10 & 8) loved it. There's plenty of bars and restaurants and even had a cocktail bar!

A beautiful and magnificently preserved old city in fabulous walls. Many half timbered and attractive stone buildings, a wonderful old cathedral and almost no tourist tat. A must-visit! One downside - a Dallas Diner in one of the squares - who allowed that?!

A magical step back in time. Narrow cobbled streets and fantastic old buildings. Many small restaurants with delicious aromas wafting out to tempt you in. Interesting cathedral. Close to the modern centre so you can combine history with retail therapy. highly recommended to while away an hour or so.

Must see. Henry II Plantagenêt birth place. The old town is often used for historical movies... Do not hesitate to walk around all small streets. Nice place to eat.
