Stepping into Nantes Imaginary Worlds...

Morning

 

Erik and Jess wake up feeling a little under the weather. But nothing will stop them from discovering the surprising gems Nantes has to offer!

 

After having a breakfast in their Jules Vernes inspired “L’Ile Mysterieuse” apartment, they head to the Botanical gardens of Nantes to observe some wildlife and verdant nature.

 

They take their bikes around the city, and make a stop at the Nantes Cathedral.

They have a coffee break at a café, enjoying a unique view of the historic landmark  Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne.

 

After having a small lunch at La Cantine du Voyage in Nantes, an ephemeral terrasse overlooking the Loire, they discover Les Machines de L’Ile, a space dedicated to artistic installations that pay homage to the imaginary world of Jules Vernes, a fiction and fantasy writer who lived in Nantes. 

 

They go back early to their Ile Mysterieuse themed apartment to get some rest.
