It's not often you get the chance to be a child again, but you can be on this beautiful carosel. Adults are allowed with or without children. The carosel is beautifully maintained.

This is where the buses come and go from and a short walk from shops and the port. A large open square with a vintage carousel.

Visited at the weekend and the weather was fabulous. Got some beautiful views of the port from the ferris wheel. Could go round another few times for the money though. It was 5 euro and we went round 3 times.

On the square itself you've got the café de la Paix, typical French café/brasserie, a creperie and 2 minutes walk away on rue Gargoulleau there are some good little restaurants along the street opposite the Arts Museum... More
