On your weekend at our Campanile hotels, visit the Le Vieux Mans area, renamed “Cité Plantagenêt” in tribute to the King of England, Duke of Normandy. This area is the privileged setting for numerous swashbuckler movies. It’s where Cyrano de Bergerac was filmed. Take time to visit the Saint-Julien cathedral and its menhir, a must-see in the city. To close out your weekend, explore the Museum of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and discover the heroes and history of this legendary race.
Start by visiting the Abbaye de l'Épau, the Collégiale Saint-Pierre, the courtyard and the Roman baths. Discover Le Mans’s unique Gallo-Roman enclosure wall, then visit the Musée de Tessé and its impressive collection of paintings. In the heart of town, enjoy the lush havens of the Pierre de Ronsard and Tanneries gardens.
An electric boat ride down the Sarthe river as a family will entertain both parents and children. It’s a different way to explore Le Mans. Enjoy yourself at the Jim and Jump amusement park, appropriate for the youngest visitors, from age one and up. To finish, the Musée Vert is a nice place to visit with its impressive collection of plants, trees, animals and fossils.
