Come and immerse yourself in the imaginary world of Jules Verne for the evening of the congress.

Accompanying Person Programme

Welcome to Nantes!

Every year, a green line is drawn on the ground, moving to the rhythm of Nantes’ constant transformation, leading visitors to its permanent or temporary art works, and celebrating a brand- new way to travel!
It has become an iconic yet playful bookmark in motion that lays out the city in a way we’d like you to discover it. 
And this discovery does not follow some static, unchanging itinerary!
It will lead you to outdoor art works, lively social spots, museums, historical or natural heritage and art galleries… so many facets of the “City of Dukes”.
Whether it’s for a weekend or a week, come discover Nantes: a city inspired by art, its estuary, and its vineyards.
Maps and travel guides devoted to each neighbourhood or region are available at Le Voyage à Nantes reception desks.



We understand the importance of approaching each work integrally and believe in the power of simple.
