The city of Nantes has undergone numerous changes over the centuries. And today the city’s architecture and layout still retain traces of the past.
La Cigale is one of the most iconic restaurants in Nantes. Even if you’re only passing through town, it is a place worth stopping by for a few minutes. While the menu is certainly enticing and the service is always friendly, it is above all the décor that has made the place so renowned. Even after many years in Nantes, every time I visit La Cigale, I am enchanted by its the beauty.
Les Utopiales is a science fiction festival attended and enjoyed by Nantes locals and international visitors on the first weekend in November each year.
