The medieval part of a town is well preserved and looks really unchanged. The best way to get to know the town is to walk from a central part to a port. For a traveler it looks like there is one big medieval city but...More

Dinan is an extraordinarily picturesque town. The whole town centre is simply lovely, and the Rue de l'Horloge is a street of many, but has the distinction of the clock tower as well. Well worth a visit.

Very pretty. Quaint. Charming. Not so easy to get to. There's parking nearby but it can take a bit to find it.

Dinan, a fairytale town like you see in Disney. It is so pretty and picturesque that I felt like a dream. It is a well preserved medieval town, filled with fantastically preserved half-timbered house dating as far back as the 13th century and cobbled streets.

The old town is open all year long: weather may be cloudy and cold. I suggest you to contact Dinan tourism office. I wish you a good holiday.
