There are so many beautiful buildings along the winding streets. I kept taking more and more photos. It felt like we were talking in a movie set. Beautiful. We had a great lunch in the area, too.

There are boards explaining in English and German as well as French what you are looking at and some history as you walk around and through the town. Fascinating to see the walls and how Napoleon decided to change it! The walls are impressive! It's...More

Some very interesting old building lie between the narrow alleyways and cobbled streets. There a few shops and restaurants mingled in amongst the houses. Well worth seeing if you are in the city,

A lovely way to discover the beautiful Medieval-Renaissance town of Le Mans with it's Gallo-Roman wall with many towers is by wandering around during the weekend of "Entre Cours et Jardins" in September. This weekend many of the private gardens and courtyards are open to...More

When I first set eyes on the historic centre of Le Mans I was amazed- it looked like something designed for a Disney set but it was real, timbered buildings, cobbled streets pretty much as it was when it came into being

We parked at the end of the tramline and got the tram into the city. Parking and return by tram was cheap enough. Can't remember how much though.
