SUMMER PROGRAM IN RENNES, FRANCE

2017 Program Dates: May 23, 2017 - June 23, 2017

RENNES, FRANCE
Rennes is a fascinating blend of a center of higher education and a rich tradition of legend and history. This capital of Brittany is a town of over 300,000 which is home to many universities and institutes and to electronics and telecommunications industries. In its historic center there are architectural reminders of its long history, from a portion of the medieval gate to the lovingly restored 18th century Parlement to the most modern of shopping centers. Rennes is both a modern city--only two hours from Paris by high-speed train--and a town attached to its Celtic roots. Rennes has had a sister city relationship with Rochester for more than 40 years and has long welcomed UR students to study . A short distance away are landing beaches of Normandy, the port city from which Cartier sailed to the new world and the ancient abbey of Mont St Michel. As one of the students remarked, "It was perfect for our study. It’s small enouigh so that it’s not too overwhelming, but large enough to not get bored."
