There are some nice views and there are some restaurants that are very good for a romantic dinner. The architecture is very interesting and there are tiny small street and walk down including small alleyways. Easy walking... More

This is a stunning place to just saunter round and perhaps have a drink and a bite to eat. There are a few lovely little shops and the whole town is just amazing. A real must if you are in Le Mans.
