In the footsteps of Jules Verne childhood

In the footsteps of Jules Verne childhood

Let yourself be guided on a journey in the footsteps of Jules Verne in Nantes, the city where he was born on February 8, 1828, and where he spent his youth.

Nantes, The Loire and Jules Verne

Nantes, the islands and the Loire, are the cradle of the work of Jules Verne. Nantes was the source of the dream and inspiration of the Extraordinary Voyages. The hustle and bustle of the Quai de la Fosse, the call to elsewhere, the Jardin des Plantes and the exotic wealth of Nantes' plant heritage. All these elements have lastingly marked Jules Verne.

Follow his steps

Discover the memories of Jules Verne and the places he attended and inspired him. Two itineraries of 1h30 or 2h will quide you along the banks of the Loire,  starting from the Hotel Graslin towards the center of Nantes.

We invite you to download the Jules Verne Track in the following, for a walk rich in stories and discoveries. Another look at the city of Nantes.

Since 2005, the esplanade Jean Bruneau has been hosting a statue of Jules Verne as a child, sitting facing the Loire, looking at his future captain Némo, taking stock of his sextant.
