The French region of Brittany offers so much to first-time visitors that it can be tough to fit all of the landmarks and activities into one excursion.
However, one destination that you must visit if you've got a holiday planned is the brilliant town of Rennes, which is the capital of the region yet can easily be overlooked.
Home to around 200,000 inhabitants, around 60,000 of whom are students, Rennes is well known for its dynamic nightlife.
So, if you're looking to enjoy a good night out with friends or family, this is one destination that you cannot ignore.
The student population ensures that there's always a lively atmosphere on the streets on a Friday and Saturday night, with Rue Saint Michel among the most interesting sites.
The translation of the name is Street of Thirst, so you can well imagine the sort of establishments that you're likely to run into on your travels.
Alternatively, if you want to let your hair down a little then it's worth spending a Thursday night on Rue de la Soif, which is typically brimming with students who are keen to have a good time.
For a night out to remember, this is definitely a good option.
However, there's plenty to see and do in the town besides enjoying the nightlife. There are, for instance, lots of great bars and restaurants dotted around the town, providing plenty of opportunity to enjoy the best local cuisine.
What's more, there is also a good public transport network in the town, meaning you can easily navigate yourself from the best bars and restaurants to the nightclub of your choice.
Daily tickets can be bought very cheaply and are valid on buses and the metro.
So, if you're determined to have a night out or two to remember, then it is well worth taking a trip to Rennes.
