Wow. We were on our way to dinner in Le Mans Old Town and chose to walk through the old mediaeval streets as the sun was setting. First we parked under the new cinema in the huge square. A great counterpoint in architecture compared to the huge old Cathedral on the other side of the square. The Cathedral (no shortage... More

I don't know how many times I have driven north/south through France and ignored Le Mans yet as my guided tour through the Plantagenet city showed me, this is a city full of interest at least from Roman times onward. Take a guided tour if you can because there is so much to see and understand and not all is... More

Wow! What an interesting place,.. Not commercial with real people still living there...and made more authentic by mist! One could almost hear carts in the cobbled streets!

As we had heard how beautiful the old town of Le Mans is, we detoured on our way back from holiday and stayed in a hotel around a 10 minute walk away. We were not disappointed. Old cobbled streets with many timbered houses. It offered great views too, sitting very high up from the new city. On Sunday morning there... More

Amazing place well worth a visit. The old town is quite simply magnificent and very interesting to see it sitting alongside the new city.

This was my second visit to the area but my first visit to the old town of Le Mans. We parked on the outskirts and took a tram into the city centre and then it was just a short walk to the old town. The medieval streets and old buildings are worth a visit. We had a lovely walk around.... More

We stopped at Le Mans to visit the racing circuit and found in the hotelroom information about the city center, which triggered our midday and evening visit.

We enjoyed the historic part of Le Mans, just walking around behind the old city wall and taking many pictures. Beautiful gothic Cathedral. Also the modern city centre was a pleasant experience. Worth a visit, do'nt know for sure if I would go a second time though. I prefer Rouen for that matter.

This is an easy location to access from virtually anywhere in Le Mans. The tram system will get you there and it is efficient and inexpensive. There are many shops and restaurants available and we enjoyed shopping in this location. Owners of local establishments were all exceptionally friendly. You can also partake in the weekly Marche' in the vicinity and... More
