Where should I go next?…
Another quick entry…
It is merely 30km on the SE of Nantes, half an hour drive or around 20 minutes train. The train will be a TER (a regional train that goes slower) so you don’t even need to book the ticket in advance and a return ticket will cost you about 10Euro.
Much of the original town and castle, Château de Clisson, were destroyed in the war. Everything we see today was rebuilt in the early 19th century when a French sculptor and his friends bought the castle. They had put in some Italian touch to the medieval castle when they planned the reconstruction. Although the castle is still very much in ruins today, it is impressive to see.
After the visit to the castle, the town is so peaceful and ideal for a walk along the riverside, in the park or around the old town.
Since it is so close to Nantes, Clisson is an ideal place for a day-trip.
Bon voyage à tous 🙂
