Angers has always been renowned as a city of intellectuals, and its status as a university city continues that tradition today. 38,000 students call this place home, and that makes for a lively atmosphere in the city’s classic pubs and trendy cafes. Meet up with the locals and share a laugh over a traditional three-course meal, prepared and eaten slowly in order to savor great conversation in addition to great food.
One thing visitors must see is Château d'Angers, an astounding 9th-century castle with iconic towers, sprawling green gardens, and Musée de la Tapisserie. That’s where you’ll find The Apocalypse Tapestry, a priceless 14-century French tapestry containing 90 scenes that depict the Apocalypse from the book of Revelation. Cap off an Angers adventure by taking a supremely relaxing gondola ride down the Maine River, soaking up all the sights and sounds of this beautiful city as you float gently along.
