We visited recently on an excursion from a cruise on the River Loire. We were very taken with this little town with its steep streets and Italianate influences. The castle, les halles and the church are all worth a visit. See separate reviews.

Great town to visit and where surprised that it looked very Italian, then discovered that an Italian had designed many of the buildings. A real gem and not far from Nantes, would highly recommend a visit.

This small town is so cute and romantic. I have the pleasure of going here for work every year, and a stroll through town is a must. I have recommended some great restaurants if you look at my profile

A beautiful little village, with a lot of charm. Quite quick to visit the center. Don't forget to combine with the castle and a meal - plenty of nice restaurants; also some nice shops.

Clisson is a beautiful, historical town with plenty to see and do. Our primary visit was to go to the local metal music festival Hellfest. If you are into serious metal then this is highly recommended. Well organised, wall to wall rock and punk music...More

We have stayed in Clisson twice; it is a picturesque medieval village through which runs the River Sevre. There's plenty of things to see including the 13th Century castle, les halles, the cathedral, shops, and the river. There are plenty of excellent restaurants that serve...More

The rain didn't dampen our spirits of this really pretty medieval village. Lots of quaint little shops and staircases leading to new delights.

Clisson is a beautiful village with a very impressive castle. The views of the river from the bridge are stunning. A very nice day out from Namtes.
