Rue Saint Michel has been duly dubbed ‘The Street of Thirst (la rue de la soif) thanks to the abundance of bars, and in early July the streets throb to the sounds of performers thanks to the Nightfall festival (Festival des Tombees de la nuit). Rennes is also home to an old town packed with charming timber framed houses, plenty of pavement cafes to relax in, and the second largest street market in France.
