Makes for a lovely walk!

Very near to the centre of vannes. Walking through the old lanes with beautiful midevial age houses make the experience more enriched. The colorful houses looks magnificent!

The old town was tiny, the place had many old buildings but the exterior paint work confused me, they looked like some fake movie setting. Especially in this little square.

Place Henri IV is near the centre of this wonderful old Breton town .We stayed 2 days and this was about right for out of season. Place is an excellent focus point for walking around Town and has a range of interesting shops and nearby restaurants. Do visit on Saturdays when the lanes just below are full of wonderful stalls...

As shown in this picture, Place Henry IV is a true miror of the old times. "Ancient elegance", I would define it.

Lovely city, walking and lots to see. Visit the church, gardens and creperie! Parking was okay but can get busy.

The old town is gorgeous, so many beauty buildings to see, lovely quirky streets and shops/cafes. If you are in Vannes on a Wednesday or a Saturday be sure to visit the outdoor market, it is an assault on the senses!

Vannes is a small City but has some great places to walk and visit these lovely old streets...stop for a coffee, drink or Galette!
