l'Opéra Graslin raises in the city center. Named from its architect Graslin, who built it in the XIXth century. It is one of nantes' major work of art. Beautiful outside and inside. Only been inside when I was a kid with my school. Remember it was quite amazing. So, if you are really lucky and plan it a long time before you might have the opportunity to assist to one of the few operas that are played here each year (6 or 7 operas this year). Sure it will be a pleaseant trip back to the XIXth century.

Otherwise, you can enjoy it from outside and take a cup of coffee "sur la Place Graslin" in either La Cigale (see restaurant tip) or Le Molière, one of Nantes' most famous café and one of the most expensive one.
