Why Le Mans?

Artist impression van trambaan
Sure, one day a year for 24 hours some cars drive around, but for the rest of the year:: is there anything worth visiting in Le Mans?
The question arose when I visited A Dutch travel forum. Someone asked if the mororway between Rouen and Alençon is open already (yes)got the answer that it's cheaper to drive by Caen and Rennes. Now that is true if you want to go to Bretagne, Nantes or even further. Now, nothing was mentioned about a destination. Anyway, why should anyone be interested in visiting Le Mans?
Well, here we go. The city with its 195.000 inhabitants thinks it's a metropolis: Le Mans Metropole. That's not that strange when your town hall is a former royal palace. The roman fortress is one of the best preserved of France and the roman-gothic cathedral of Saint-Julien has a ceiling painting starring 47 angels giving a celestial concert. Then of cause there's the ancient city center, beautifulle illuminated during summer nights. Some smaller museums, theatres and cinemas make the town complete.

wanneer je wilt tanken op deze nieuwe autoroute, zorg voor een tankkaart i.v.m geen contante betalingen mogelijk.
Hoe je aan zo'n kaart komt weet ik niet.
Wij hebben het opgelost, doormiddel van vragen aan mensen die zon kaart gebruikte tegen betaling te mogen gebruiken.
En aangezien zij zo vriendelijk waren deden zij het dan ook.
Maar eigenlijk zou de voorlichting hierover best wel beter mogen zijn.
