    Excellent road network

    by bzh Updated Mar 15, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Brittany has an excellent road network built around a few dual carriageway roads, where the speed limit is 110 km/h. This is what the French call "voie express". It is faster than a main road but is not quite a motorway. The good news is that Brittany is the only region in France where there is not a single toll paying motorway, while having roads that are in fact motorways in every respect but the name.

    Local folklore has it that the reason for not having a single paying road in Brittany is that, when Anne de Bretagne married the French king and hence brought Brittany to the crown of France, one of the articles in the marriage contract stipulated that a tax would never be levied on the Breton people for road usage. Whether this is true or not, the way toll paying motorways coming form Paris give way to non-paying dual-carriageways a few hundred metres before the "welcome to Brittany" sign makes one wonder.

    Moving around most towns in Bretagne is by bus..Its cheap, and always available. Unlike Paris, metro is not very popular here, and it is just very convinient to go round with the bus.

    We rented a boat and cruised on a river, the Mayenne. There are lots of little locks where you have to go through. It was a lot of fun!
