The radiant Cité des Congrès in Nantes. The Cité des Congrès has been animating the cultural and professional life of Nantes for more than 25 years. It is one of the most dynamic convention centers in France and contributes to the city's national and international reputation. Plays, ballets, one-man shows, concerts and operas are regularly performed there. You will discover artists such as Gérard Jugnot, Benjamin Biolay, Anne Roumanoff, Gaspard Proust and Véronique Sanson. Access to culture for all is one of the main themes developed by the Cité. Socially responsible rates and events organized outside the city walls are therefore on offer. The space can also be used for private events: conferences, trade fairs and company conventions can therefore be hosted here. The Cité's team is available to listen to your needs and offer its know-how to support each project by developing and enhancing their strengths. The building's glass architecture provides natural lighting and a calming view of the Saint-Félix canal. Before returning to your Première Classe Nantes Saint Sébastien sur Loire hotel, enjoy a drink on the banks of the river Erdre at the Lieu Unique, a cultural center located five minutes away on foot, in the former LU biscuit factory building.
The Jules Verne museum is a trip to the center of Vernian writing. Nestled on Sainte-Anne hill overlooking the Loire, a vast 19th century bourgeois house has been home to the Jules Verne museum since 1978. From your Première Classe Nantes Rezé Aéroport hotel, opt for a literary afternoon on the edge of the author's imagination and ingenious creations. During a chronological and then thematic tour, the museum presents excerpts from the works, posters, portraits, letters, models of extraordinary machines (such as the Nautilus), illustrations, etc. inviting the spectator to enter the writer's whimsical universe. A number of objects that belonged to him are also on display, such as a globe, patinated by time. The museography is complemented by digital media and ends in a projection room and a reading room. Originally from Nantes, Jules Vernes (1828-1905) spent his childhood there before leaving for other regions. Often considered one of the most famous historical figures of the city, many creations and events pay tribute to him (such as the Machines de l'île which remind us of his fantastic worlds). As one of the most translated authors in the world, the museum strives to raise public awareness of the richness of Nantes' Vernian collections. An exotic journey into the author's wonderful worlds!
Planète sauvage, a bewitching sanctuary! Located just half an hour's drive from your Première Classe Nantes Rezé Aéroport hotel, the Planète sauvage animal park offers five different worlds - marine city, bush path, Inca trail, safari trail and jungle temple - to take you on an expedition into the heart of nature. With four main missions - raising awareness, education, research and conservation - the park is dedicated to the preservation of species and a better understanding of wildlife among the general public. You will be able to discover large mammals such as lions, rhinoceroses and tigers aboard a 4x4, watch a dolphin show, walk among lemurs in the wild, cross a suspension bridge in the company of monkeys or walk on a footbridge in a lake environment to admire the colorful plumage of parrots and pink flamingos. Activities such as meeting animal keepers are on offer. They will help you understand the daily life of the species and to discover the unseen side of certain areas in the park. Great adventurers will be delighted to be able to stay overnight, in the heart of the reserve, in the company of a bush guide!
