LOCATIONThe city of Rennes (pop.: 400,000) is situated in the east of Brittany in north-western France. Rennes is the capital of the region and is a true college city with some 60,000 students enrolled in private and public universities across the city. With an extensive culture and artistic community, Rennes is full of small restaurants, cafes, museums and attractions of all kinds. Rennes also claims the second largest "street market" in France, welcoming visitors, tourist and study abroad students every Saturday morning. Students will find that it is very easy to navigate throughout the city with convenient bus networks and metro service across the city. Its location is also ideal for when a change of scenery may be needed or adventure is on the mind - such as Paris or the Atlantic coast.
