How to get to the city of Nantes in France
El airport Nantes Atlantique is in the municipality of Bougenais, just 10 minutes from downtown. It is the largest in western France, and 25 aircraft land different flight companies. From the airport there is connection to the city by train, tram, bus and taxi.

El Castle of the Dukes of Brittany is awesome. It was built in the fifteenth century as a military fortress, and according to the occupation of the city was inhabited by French or Breton. Currently in the interior of the castle is the Museum of History of Nantes; One of the 32 halls explains what happened to the castle over time. The rest of the exhibition focuses on the city and its evolution.
Other monuments and beautiful places are the door of San Pedro (in the wall of the city); Plaza Royale, where the division between the new and old part of Nantes is observed; and the LU tower.
