The capital of Brittany, Rennes, is one of the best tourist destinations in western France and is certainly well worth a visit if you're in the area on a family camping holiday.
Although the area is best known for being home to a large student population, there is much more to the city besides the vibrant nightlife that you're sure to encounter on your travels.
It is, in fact, a fascinating holiday destination from an historic viewpoint, which provides a lovely contrast between the liveliness of the city and its enthralling back-story.
The city is home to stone fortifications that can be traced back to the time of Roman rule. During the first century many of the surrounding ruins were under the control of the Romans.
But despite harking back so long, some of the ruins are in remarkably good condition, including the Duchesne tower and wall.
Parlement de Bretagne
The Parlement de Bretagne, which was built in the 17th century, is a famous historic landmark - and one that is definitely worth visiting.
On the inside of the building, you will find an impressive wood décor, as well as an art gallery that features artwork form the 1600s.
If you're something of an art buff, then this city has plenty for you, not least of which is the Musee des Beaux-Arts.
Opened in 1794, the gallery has become the home of lots of confiscated artwork that dates back to the time of the French revolution.
There are works from the likes of Christophe-Paul de Robien, among others. So, if you are keen to match history and artwork, then this is one must-visit destination.
And once you've enjoyed the more cultured aspects of the city, you can head out into the centre and enjoy the great nightlife on offer.
