    Petit Train Of Dinan

    by CDM7 Updated Sep 4, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A nice way of seeing the old town and the river in Dinan is by land train.On this trip you will discover the old town with its half timbered houses,the Basilica of Saint Saviour,the Clock Tower and Clock Square,the Ramparts and the Viaduct.The train then descends the hill towards the River Rance for some lovely views of the town bridge and the marina.
    The 40 minute trip costs 6 euro/adult and 4 euro/child.A commentary will be given in English.

    Train Stop in the Old Town. Down by the river.

    Driving in France

    by sue_stone Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In June/July 2006 we had a 9 day driving holiday in France. We caught a car ferry from Dover to Calais, drove down through Normandy, popped into Brittany and then caught the ferry back to Dover from Boulogne-sur-Mer.

    We chose to take our own car over, as the cost of the ferry and petrol was significantly cheaper than flying from London and hiring a car in France. I also feel a lot more comfortable travelling in our own car as opposed to a hire car.

    The only negative thing about driving our car in France is that it is a right hand drive car, and French cars are left hand drive, which means that tolls/tickets machines etc are on the wrong side of the car for the driver to operate…luckily I was able to assist in these duties from the passenger seat, but I do feel sorry for the solo traveller in these situations.

    Driving in France is great. The roads are good and the sign posting is excellent. You can hoon along on the wide tollways/freeways, or travel along pretty coastal roads, soaking up the atmosphere of the French countryside. Just remember which side of the road you have to drive on if you come over from the UK.

    This tourism train take you to the main sites of Dinan including the beautiful river-side Dinan. It takes 40 minutes and cost €6 and €4 for adults and children, respectively. Hours: 9h -15. Its an ideal way to see the town when your time is limited.

    The train starts from Theatre des Jacobins

    Le Petit Train

    by hquittner Updated Oct 9, 2007

    For senior citizens with a limited walking capacity, the upper part of Dinan is relatively easy (except perhaps for the cobblestones). Getting to the Port is not stressful because it is downhill. But how to get back up to the town center? (I do not think there are taxis). The tourist train makes stops at 3 points: the Theatre des Jacobins, Pl. du Champs Clos and the Port (du Plaisance). The charge fo a 45 minute circuit is 5 euro. If seniors check the schedule they can be at the Port stop and take only a part of the circuit and see everything. Most tourist trains are not situated in venues that are formidible like Dinan, but it is always worth considering if no other transportation is available.
