Good overview of the city, except that it goes in quite some commercial streets and not to any park, which represent the city quite well too. Kids had a good time. Commentary in French only but still enjoyable.

After a few days of driving it was nice to take the little train around the city to see what all it had to offer.

The train runs from outside the Cathedral and, like most petit trains, does not stop en route. We were surprised how far it travelled, and were pleased as it gave us a good overview of where things were in Nantes, taking in the major sites....More

Usual tourist train that went round the city centre and briefly to the ISle de Nantes. French commentary only, but a comprehensive written guide in English.

The ride tours the different areas of Nantes and is good for an introduction to the city, or a review.

In about an hour you get to see many of the interesting points in town, and can then plan which places you might want to revisit.

Good way to get a little tour of the city. Took about an hour. No getting off. Much cheaper than the open top bus tour which doesn't come often enough to be useful.
