    petit train of Angers

    by gwened Updated Feb 17, 2015

    This is always a quaint way to see a city and enjoyable with children, the petit train or little train takes you to all the main sights and then you can choose the ones you like to see in detail on foot.

    nice ride on a nice day. For info, we passed by it but train was out ! Here is the tourist office on it

    and you can come all the way by car to parc République and walk over to the castle for the petit train !!!

  • Parking in Angers

    by ssfree Written Oct 1, 2012

    Thank you...We parked at Rue de La Poissonnerie (in front of the Ibis Hotel)- which was very convenient and reasonably priced. We spent about 4-5 hours and spent 5Euros for parking and the Ibis hotel staff were very friendly and even gave us a local map of Angers!

    COTRA Bus

    by TimDaoust Written Apr 29, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Buses in Angers are pretty efficient and the stops are plentiful enough to cover the whole city. It's a great way to get around and see the greater Angers area. You may need to hop on the bus if you want to see the cointreau distillery, for example. There are several different bus lines and some of them share stops. Each stop has a pretty extensive map of the area and which lines run where. The buses themselves are cool because some of them are double length and have this awkward looking accordian thing in the middle to help it snake its way through the narrow city streets. For rates go here

    Move by bus!

    by Mikebond Updated Mar 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Angers can be visited on foot. However, if you need to move fast or to get outside the town, you can rely on the bus service by COTRA. There are 16 lines. A tramway line will be connect Avrillé (North) to La Roseraie (South). A second line is likely to follow.
    The bus ticket cost 1 € when I was in Angers but I've just read it costs 1,10 € now. You usually buy it from the driver when you get on the bus. You can get a monthly card at a bureau of COTRA (see photo).
    You can find all the timetables in the site of the Mairie d'Angers.

    Take the TGV

    by shrimp56 Updated Nov 10, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The TGV gets you from Paris-Montparnasse to Angers-St. Laud in 1.5 hours. The train station is only a short walk from the main sites in Angers -- it's a do-able day trip.
