If you travel from Paris, you will have to go to the Gare Montparnasse. There’s an hourly train for Angers and the journey only lasts 1h35; you will then have plenty of time to visit the city! But if you travel from Nantes, you can take a TGV and be in Angers in just 30 minutes. To check the departure times and book tickets, please visit the SNCF website.
Angers Loire airport is located 20 km far from the city center, and you can get there by car or take a taxi. If you wish to discover other French cities, please note that there are regular flights to Dole, Nice, Toulouse, and even London.
To discover Angers from a historical point of view, what’s better than a peaceful hike? Along the 6-km-long trail, you will walk around town and see what hides behind the beautiful medieval architecture and marvel at the Angers Castle.
Just like in any other big city, you can get around town using an economical and environmentally-friendly means thanks to the Vélocité+. Created in 2004, the city counts more than 2200 bikes that you can rent even if you have a low budget. To do so, you need to go to the Vélocité+ agency (2 boulevard Auguste Alloneau, 3,5 km far from the city center) and choose the option that suits you best. Prices then vary according to how long you rent your bike. But once again, renting a bike is purse-friendly!
Improved in 2011, the Irigo network now counts 27 bus lines and 1 tram line that can take you wherever you want.
