What a great way to see the city and to learn its history!

This was a relaxing and informative way to gain an insight into the history of Angers - much the same as a hop-on-hop-off bus tour that most cities offer.

It was lovely to see such historic buildings and to find out when and why they were founded. It is a lovely comfy little train and the music was ver relaxing.

The train is fun to be on though a little uncomfortable. The commentary is in French but you are given an English transcript. It is a city tour on a small scale on a silly train.
