The Crossroads of the Aether
Nantes is now my favorite city in the world. It is the 4th largest city in France and was once the capital of Brittany. It is less than 1 hour, by plane, ESE of Paris. The city centre is amazing. It is full of narrow, brick-paved pedestrian streets lined with retail shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and (my personal favorite) kebab shops.
