it's a lovely walk through the gardens next to the historical ramparts ,some date back to 300AD from Roman times. If you ask for a map from TI it contains some walks and points out the places of interest. Worth visiting

The old town in Vannes is well worth a visit, the ramparts and gardens are very impressive and the medieval part of the town is awesome! It’s all really clean and very few ‘tacky’ touristy shops!

Beautiful, well worth walking through and pretty much a ‘must do’ as probably central to everything Vannes!

There was a Literary Festival in Vannes when we visited and only the delegates of the festival were allowed to access the gardens. It was a huge disappointment as we were looking forward to seeing the Ramparts and walking around the gardens. As we approached...More
