With a large proportion of its population being students, Rennes in France is as lively as you'd expect it to be. From your hostel, you'll be close enough to discover all the best sights - start in the historic Place Saint Anne, a lively square-framed building with crooked timbered houses. While you're there, explore Saint Aubin Church and stop for a crêpe with your favourite toppings while people-watching on an outdoor patio. Peruse the city's lavish Fine Arts Museum, browse the colourful market stalls on a Saturday and relax in a leafy park with a picnic of local produce and wine. Spend the evening at Rue St Michel, a long street full of energetic bars and nightclubs where Rennes' student population congregate. Head over in July to see The Nightfall Festival, a celebration of street art and performance; or December for Transmusicales, a rock festival featuring some of the world's top names.
