Touristic information

Why not spending a few days in Brittany before or after the school/conference?

You can start by Rennes city center where old buildings (Brittany's parliament, timbered houses, City Hall, Palais du Commerce,...) are located at walking distances from more modern ones (Les Champs Libres culture center, train station,...). Many churches and gardens (Thabor garden is the largest) are also worth a visit before sharing a drink in the "Rue de la Soif".
