This is probably the best way to see the beautiful old town of Dinan in about 45 minutes. The train goes through the little winding streets, and around the ramparts. Definitely a must do in Dinan.

It was indeed a lovely trip around the town and down to the port. It was however very hot when we went and the train is closed in on one side so it was a bit hot and sweaty.

This is a fun way of enjoying an excursion around the town. We discovered that the train started its journey conveniently outside our hotel (Arvor) by the side of the theatre. The train was filled to capacity but the sturdy little engine coped very well...More
