The Best of Brest in English

A great introduction to Brest


Do you speak English ? Are you in Brest looking for something to do? Would you like to learn fascinating stories about Brest and Brittany while having fun ? Great! Follow the guide then !

Brest, France’s westernmost city, can be surprising at first. Vastly destroyed during the war, its history can be hard to grasp with the naked eye only. During this 2-3 hour tour, we’ll go find the hidden gems that remind us of Brest’s history, a story spanning no less than 17 centuries. From the Place de la Liberté to the urban cable cars, we’ll be walking through Brest’s culture, past and present. We’ll learn about the unusual architecture, and get a nice introduction to the celtic culture and history of Brittany (and why we feel sooo special!)
