Travel Tips for Angers
Sense of Adventure and Exploration
Walking shoes. Most of the things to be seen can be reached on foot and it's a pleasant town to walk around in generally speaking. Pack a Sense of Adventure and Exploration, this town has a lot to offer in the way of things to do and see.
Le Métro danceclub, Angers area
Le Métro is a discothèque in the Angers vicinity. They provide free buses from central Angers for those who can't or don't wanna drive out. The buses leave from Place du Président Kennedy (right near the château)
Visit the Fortress (Chateau)
The fortress (chateau) of Angers stands forcefully on a promontory overlooking both the river and the city. Its 17 towers may not be as tall as they were when St. Louis (IX) built them but the whole structure still looks impregnable. The deep moat was drained and planted long ago and now is a green pasture for grazing fawn. One enters over the drawbridge into a large interior area with both old and new buildings and fine horticulture (a specialty of Angers).
Jardin du Mail
Go see these gardens in Angers. Created around the 17th century, the paths in the garden converge on a fountain done by Barbezat. The park is open year round. I'm sorry to say that I don't have any pictures because I never got a chance to go but I shall on the return journey this December.
This museum I did see and on the same day as the Fete de la Musique so I regret to say we rushed through it in anticipation of the coming evenings events. But I did see it all.
There was a huge collection of Asian and African art all within the small rooms of the historic Hotel Pince on rue Lenepveu, giving the museum a very intimate feel to it. I'll have a picture from inside the museum up here soon.
