Our Ifremer meeting hosts have provided information on a tour about the history of Nantes (Walking Tour of Nantes – PDF) which commences on Tuesday 9th September at 13:30 and finishes at 16:00 in time to join the IRSO tour of ‘Machines de l’Ile’ (MACHINES DE L’ILE EN – PDF).  Other tours for partners/guests can be discussed with our meeting hosts on arrival.
