“Beautiful Old town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

What an under-rated place! The timber framed village atmosphere mixed with the anticipation of the 24 hrs of Lemans.
Opposites attract!

“greatest cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

The old town of Le Mans is very pretty. It is not very big and you can easily walk through it within an hour. It has an impressive cathedral, copple stones, great small cosy restaurants and cafes. It is a good idea to get a tourist brochure about the old town, as it will explain you the significance of many buildings (maison des clefs, pilier rouge, maison blue etc). The old town was also used for many big movies (Bergerac, Man with the iron mask etc). Well preserved charming old town.

“Contrasting very old with modern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

The old city is beautiful, didn't know where to look. Had the most amazing meal on the main square in a restaurant call Le Taverna, 4 courses for €22.00.
