W e lc o m e to Rennes A THE CITY OF RENNES Rennes is the tenth largest city in France with a population of almost 210,000, but the population rises to 420,000 if you include the Rennes Métropole area (Rennes and the surrounding 43 towns and villages) is included. It is however a city of a friendly size, and is a pleasant place in which to live. The high standard of living in Rennes, its wide range of activities that take place there, its culture life, its historical and architectural heritage, and its economic and social dynamism all make it a city that is greatly appreciated both by its inhabitants and its visitors. Rennes is one of Brittany's unmissable tourist destinations because of its historical and cultural wealth and its status as the capital of Brittany, as well as its central position in the heart of the greater west region of France. It is only 2 hours away from Paris by TGV (high-speed train), and is not far from many internationally renowned destinations of interest, such as Saint-Malo, the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, and the Côte d'Émeraude (the Emerald Coast - between the bays of Mont-Saint-Michel and Saint-Brieuc). [ It is also the city with the largest student population in the west of France. Its two universities and numerous other higher education establishments and institutes make it a major university and research centre. ] ©www.photosderennes.fr La rue Saint-Sauveur Rennes is one of Brittany's unmissable tourist destinations because of its historical and cultural wealth and its status as the capital of Brittany, as well as its central position in the heart of the greater west region of France.
