We stopped in Le Mans for convenience really as we drove back to the UK from southern Spain - the only thing I knew about Le Mans previously was the racing - didn't know it was so quaint and charming . We had a little walk round mid afternoon - but there wasn't a lot open or much happening but... More

Stunning old town, lovely cafes and craft shops, great way to spend a few hours in Le Mans. The cathedral also looks stunning, but didn't go in.

Spent a very pleasant few hours wandering round the Old Town, on Sunday 10th July 2016, which was a very warm day, 28 degrees ish. Plenty of shade in the old town and ideal place to shelter from the sun on a bright sunny day. The old buildings are fascinating and provide countless photographic opportunities. The are plenty of small... More

Very well preserved and fascinating medieval town inside the fortifications.Wonderful views from the ramparts, and lots of lovely little craft shops. Quite steep and you do need sensible footwear due to the uneven surfaces. There's a tourist information centre at its heart that would probably give you an informative map, although we had a Michelin guide. Lots of restaurants, bars... More

Most people probably come because of the race track and museum but the old town here is very pretty and well worth a good stroll around especially in the evening and night when there is a light show .

...and worth a trip to Le Mans to see in its own right. The medieval, and older, streets and buildings are in a remarkable state of preservation and the city authority has done a great job to ensure that you can enjoy your visit to this piece of history. Then there's the cathedral.... Just go and see, you wont be... More
