Angers is one of the three main cities to visit in the Loire area, and there is no better way to do so than on le Petit Train Blanc. These run every hour and take around 40 minutes, and allow you to view the principal...More

This road train leaves from outside the tourist office, opposite the castle. Buy a 24 hour city pass for €15 take the train and visit the castle, and you will have already saved money. The train has carriages for each nationality, so you always get...More

These small 'trains' are ideal in towns not being big enough for a hop-on-hop-off bus. The benefit is also that they can travel through very narrow streets and make sharp turns. So also this little train that gave us a very good overview of Angers...More

Angers was a 48hr max city. Any longer and we'd have fallen out of love with the place. We'd already done the castle and cathedral which were amazing and took Le Petit Train to orient ourselves further. I'm so glad we did as North of...More

Hopped on at 3 pm. Each carriage has the tour guide narrated in their requested language. Love these little trips as you get to see parts of the town you would never find yourself.
