Les Rouges et Noirs

Rennes is the capital of the French région of Brittany. It is the préfecture of the département of Ille-et-Vilaine. With a population of some 220 000 it is the tenth most populous city in France.

Appart from Sydney, I have spent
no longer time in any other place than in Rennes. It has become my home away from Home.

I first visited Rennes at the about of 9, i went with my family to stay with my uncle for a month.

After this initial visit i would come back every year or so and even did some of My High schooling and University studies in the city.

I have come to have made some truly wonderful friends in Rennes, many of whom have subsequently left the city and today live all around the world. I have found the city to be both peaceful and vibrabt for a small city. The city has a great appreciation for the arts and invests thousands of dollars (euros) each year on musical and cinematic endevours.
If you should come to France ,come and visit Rennes. It is a beautiful city with a wonderful history. It is a city which is both distinctly French and "Breton".

Pros and Cons

    I am flying from UK to Rennes, to travel onwards to la Roche-Bernard, to meet a friend at his boat. Is there a bus service from Rennes to Redon or even on to La Roche-Bernard? Regards Howard Rees

    great info, Maximillian. We are two adults who will spend 3 days in Rennes or St Malo in September. Interessted in evening activities like theatre, concert, etc. Would Rennes be a beter place for 3 nites than St Malo? Both sound fasciinating to visit.

    very entertaining - and it summed up all that is worth visiting during a short stay in the area.
