Leading green city in France recognised for its quality of life, Angers is a destination where city and nature are one – it’s part of our history. Angers is also home to the first botanical theme park in Europe: Terra Botanica, for an incredible immersion in a plant universe. The many parks and gardens, the Île Saint-Aubin (a preserved island in the heart of the city) and the Lower Angevin Valleys offer you a memorable experience, as close to nature as possible. Take the time to discover Angers and the surrounding towns from the rivers that cross them, to stroll through the city centre, to have a drink on the terrace and, quite simply, to enjoy yourself!
