We found a free car park 5 minute's walk from the town centre and explored on foot. Everything is close-by in Vannes. Place Henry IV was easy to find, just ollowing everyone else. Luckily we arrived mid-morning on a weekday, but it was already getting busy with tourists. The medieval timber framed buldings are superb, fitting with the rest of... More

If you are in Vannes exploring the old city, this area is easy to find as it is usually full of tourists:-). But, take a minute anyway to admire the half timbered buildings (and the fact they are still standing) while having a coffee and a bite to eat. Plenty of other things to see in Vannes but take a...

The beauty of Vannes is that most of the interesting places to swee are located in one small area. The other reviews sum up this old part of the town. Even though there was a constant heavy flow of traffic, sitting in one of the cafes enjoying a coffee allows the atmosphere of the place to roll over you.

We visited this atmospheric town a Monday in July. We went for a stroll and admired the charming buildings and the nice atmosphere, sat down in one of the many street cafés and had crepes, ice cream and coffee. There are also a lot of exciting small shops to look into :-)

This is a beautiful square in Vannes. The buildings are well preserved and it is well worth a visit. Gets very busy with tourists.

Lively atmospheric square at heart of old Town Vannes, good place to sit and relax enjoy a cup of coffee or aperitif and watch the world go by. A great place to take photographs of the mediaeval architecture that is the attraction of the old Town.

This is a small square surrounded by 14th/15th century building all in good order. It is a very popular tourist spot hence always crowded but still provides good photo opportunities. There are often a street performers there. On any visit to Vannes, it should not be missed.Vannes

A quite beautiful medieval square surrounded by timbered houses. From this period quite a few buildings are preserved in comparison to cities such as Nantes or even Rennes. The whole city is well worth strolling through and the distances are not great between squares and beautiful buildings.

The historic centre of Vannes with fine slate roofs and half-timbered houses. Small enough to see all round easily, and a pleasant walk when the shops aren't open.
