The train runs from outside the Cathedral and, like most petit trains, does not stop en route. We were surprised how far it travelled, and were pleased as it gave us a good overview of where things were in Nantes, taking in the major sites....More

Usual tourist train that went round the city centre and briefly to the ISle de Nantes. French commentary only, but a comprehensive written guide in English.
