Went into Le Mans old town during my stay for the 24 hour superbikes. Lovely quaint surroundings that have been maintained very well. Restaurants, bars and coffeeshops mingle amongst the old town buildings and cathedrall. Nice place to spend a while just mooching about

Have a wonder around the Old Town, get lost in the maze of streets, marvel at the quaint buildings. Probably one of the best things you can do in Le Man - and it's free !

Definitely worth a visit. The Old town is typical with beams and lathe and plaster work. tiny little ally ways and beautiful flower borders. It was like something out of a Novel!

This is a really nice and relaxing place to visit so close to the hustle and bustle of the new city, but a great escape from it.

Loved walking through the old city. There are never many people around allowing you to take photographs or just be lost in your own thoughts.

When we think of Le Mans we think of the 24 hour race. We had no idea that Le Mans has a wonderful old town which is worth a visit. Old houses and cobbled streets and remains of a Roman wall. Very picturesque. Well worth a visit.

Quaint and lovely - well worth an hour spent wandering through the streets. Not what you expect when you arrive at Le Mans.

I had no idea that Le Mans had an historical medieval center like this. It was an extremely pleasant surprise to discover it. It is not commercially exploited (not in late winter/early spring, anyway) and looks very authentical.
